NRAO Community Day at the GSFC

The NRAO will conduct a two-day Community Event hosted by Texas Tech University in Lubbock, Texas, on May 30 and 31, 2019.

The registration deadline is May 15, 2019. Please register using the Registration link on the left menu. The program is designed for up to 35 participants, and we will accept them in the order their registrations are received by us.

  3. Download the demo data sets (use Firefox)
