ALMA Community Day Event at the University of Washington

NRAO Live! Event at the University of Wisconsin in Madison


Date: April 3, 2020
Time: 9am - 5pm (PDT)
Location: Online event. Platform to be used: Zoom

Update (03/16/2020): THIS EVENT WILL NOW BE HOSTED ONLINE. Registration is encouraged, especially if you have specific questions in mind, but not required.

The National Radio Astronomy Observatory (NRAO) and ALMA Ambassadors cordially invite you to an ALMA Proposal Workshop at the University of Washington. 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 virtual demonstration on how to prepare proposals for the upcoming ALMA Cycle 8 deadline. We will dive into imaging and simulation of ALMA interferometric data using CASA. Registration is free.

We encourage attendees to download beforehand the ALMA Observing Tool here (Cycle 8 OT available starting on March 17th) and the latest CASA version here.

We look forward to seeing you online!
