by Gustaaf Van Moorsel last modified Jan 04, 2012

UC Berkeley will host an NRAO Community Day on 13 January 2012. The maximum number of participants is 35. Please register using the Registration link on the left. We accept participants in the order their registrations are received by us.


This one-day workshop will be held in 325 LeConte Hall on the UC Berkeley campus; wireless access will be provided. The afternoon will feature a number of hands-on sessions, including observation preparation and data reduction, and we therefore ask participants to do the following prior to the Community Day (the possibility to install CASA and download data during the Community Day may cannot be guaranteed).:

  1. Register at the NRAO user database if you have not done so yet
  2. Participants interested in ALMA are encouraged to register at the ALMA science portal
  3. Bring a laptop
  4. Make sure you have the current release of CASA (3.3.0) on your laptop.; if not, please download and install it
  5. Download the demo data we will be using during the CASA demo by anonymous ftp. Go to ftp.aoc.nrao.edu, log on as 'anonymous', use your e-mail as password, do a cd staff/gvanmoor/community_day, and retrieve the four tar files (full.tar, H3CN.tar, SiS.tar, and sp.tar)
