July 10 - 17, 2013
Arecibo Observatory, Puerto Rico

NAIC (Arecibo) and NRAO (Green Bank) are organizing the seventh NAIC-NRAO school on single-dish radio astronomy. This will be held from 11-17 July 2013 at the Arecibo observatory in Puerto Rico. The objective of the school is to provide graduate students, post-docs, and experts in other fields of astronomy with both knowledge and practical experience of the techniques and applications of single-dish radio astronomy.

The school will be based around an intensive series of lectures from experts. A significant part of each participant's time at the school will be spent performing a hands-on radio-astronomy project. For this, they will make observations with either the Arecibo 305-m telescope or the Green Bank 100-m (GBT) telescope, analyze the data acquired, and interpret the results.
