NRAO Community Day at the University of California at San Diego

Date: March 31 - April 1, 2015
Time: 9am - 5pm
Location: Jack Keil Wolf Auditorium (formerly CMRR Auditorium), on the main campus of the University of California, San Diego.

Registration is free, but we'd greatly appreciate it if you could sign up before March 26 so that we have an accurate count for lunches!

The National Radio Astronomy Observatory (NRAO) cordially invites you to a NRAO Community Event at the University of California at San Diego. This event is designed for all astronomers, and in particular for those who do not regularly utilize radio data in their research. The workshop will be two days long. On the first day we will provide an overview of the NRAO facilities, have a brief discussion of mm interferometry and CASA 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 3 deadline. On the second day 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.

This event is hosted by the Center for Astrophysics and Space Sciences (CASS) which is an Organized Research Unit at UCSD with affiliated faculty from the departments of Physics, Electrical and Computer Engineering, and Chemistry at UCSD.
