ALMA Community Day Event at the Rochester Institute of Technology

NRAO Live! Event at the University of Wisconsin in Madison


Date: March 28, 2018
Time: 9am - 5pm
Location: 078 SLA-1630 Louise Slaughter Building

The National Radio Astronomy Observatory (NRAO) and ALMA Ambassadors cordially invite you to an ALMA Proposal Workshop at the Rochester Institute of Technology. This event is designed for all astronomers, and in particular for those who do not regularly utilize radio data in their research. The one-day workshop will provide an overview of ALMA and the Cycle 6 capabilities, a brief discussion of mm interferometry, and an overview of the proposal preparation and submission processes. In the afternoon there will be a hands-on session to prepare proposals for the upcoming ALMA Cycle 6 deadline on April 19th, 2018. We will dive into interferometric data taken with ALMA and use CASA to reduce and analyze the data. Lunch will be provided for registered participants

If you are unable to participate for the full day, you are welcome to attend for a part of the program. Please register as well in that case and indicate this in the registration form.

For the hands-on session in the afternoon, it is convenient if all participants have installed and tested CASA 5.1.1 and the ALMA Observing Tool <https://almascience.nrao.edu/proposing/observing-tool> (Cycle 6 OT will be available after March 20th) on their laptops beforehand.

Registration is free, but we'd greatly appreciate it if you could sign up before March 23 so that we have an accurate count for lunches!

We look forward to seeing you at the Rochester Institute of Technology!
