ALMA Community Day Event at the West Virginia University

NRAO Live! Event at the University of Wisconsin in Madison


Date: March 28-29, 2016
Time: 9am - 5pm
Location: TBD

The National Radio Astronomy Observatory (NRAO) and ALMA Ambassadors cordially invite you to an ALMA Proposal Workshop at West Virginia University. 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 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 5 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.

Registration is free, but we'd greatly appreciate it if you could sign up before March 20 so that we have an accurate count for lunches!

We look forward to seeing you in Morgantown!
-Nichol Cunningham (ALMA Ambassador)
