Time: 9am - 5:00pm
Location: Evans Conference Room (15.202A), RLM Building

The National Radio Astronomy Observatory (NRAO) and ALMA Ambassadors cordially invite you to an ALMA Proposal Workshop at the University of Texas at Austin. This event is designed for all astronomers, and in particular for those who do not regularly utilize radio data in their research. We encourage participation from graduate students and junior postdocs, but we welcome any astronomer with no radio background to attend. The one-day workshop will provide an overview of ALMA including new 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 7 deadline. We will dive into imaging and simulation of ALMA interferometric data using CASA. Lunch will be provided for registered participants.

Registration is free, but note that the number of attendees is limited. We'd greatly appreciate it if you could sign up before April 1st so that we have an accurate count for lunches.


We look forward to seeing you in Austin!
