Host an NRAO Community Day Event

by Emmanuel Momjian last modified Nov 01, 2018

The National Radio Astronomy Observatory (NRAO) is pleased to accept applications from institutes in North America to host a Community Day Event (CDE) between mid-January and mid-September 2019. CDEs are one- to two-day events designed in cooperation with host institutions during which NRAO staff give presentations on the capabilities of the Very Large Array (VLA), the Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array (ALMA), and the Very Long Baseline Array (VLBA), and tutorials on proposal preparation, observation preparation, and/or data reduction and data products.

The CDE agenda will be largely driven by the goals of the host institution and the expected participants. There will be no cost to the host institution. We ask only that you engage a minimum of 15 participants, each of which is expected to bring a modern laptop capable of running the required software, and provide a sufficiently large meeting room with typical audiovisual capabilities (projector) and Wi-Fi. To reach this minimum, consider inviting colleagues from other institutions in your area.

To apply to host an NRAO CDE and for further information, please contact Emmanuel Momjian (emomjian_at_nrao.edu).
