Proposal & Observing Preparation with NRAO Telescopes

Hosted by the National Radio Astronomy Observatory (NRAO) scientific staff, this Splinter Session is designed to assist members of the astronomy community who are unfamiliar with radio-wavelength observing. This Session will provide practical advice and hands-on guidance regarding observing proposals and observation preparation for each of the four state-of-the-art NRAO telescopes: the international Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array (ALMA), the Jansky Very Large Array (VLA), the Very Long Baseline Array (VLBA), and the Green Bank Telescope (GBT). This Session will feature an overview of on-going and new NRAO telescope and instrument capabilities, interactive walk-throughs for proposing to each facility and guided, hands-on tutorials of the proposal and observing preparation tools for each telescope.
