NRAO Community Day at the Space Telescope Science Institute

Date: March 13-15, 2019
Time: 9am - 5pm
Location: NRAO, Charlottesville, VA

Are you the PI of a successful ALMA project? Have you received a beautiful, giant dataset that you need to get the best science from? You are not alone! Many of us have been or are in this situation, and the North American ALMA Science Center has exactly what you need to figure this out. We invite North American ALMA users to join us for a free, three-day ALMA Data Reduction Party that will take place March 13-15 at the North American ALMA Science Center in sunny Charlottesville, Virginia.

We will provide access to our data reduction cluster, data analysts to prepare your dataset locally, and help you understand the calibration and preliminary imaging that has been done on your dataset. Staff scientists with CASA expertise will also be available to help you decide if you can push the imaging further, if self-calibration will improve your results, and how to analyze and display your fabulous data in a way that allows you to extract the exciting science results that you know are in there. All you need to bring are your laptop, your enthusiasm, and your questions.

Registration for this event is free and travel support will be provided, but space is limited, so please sign up early.

See you in March!
