Please note that the Cycle 8 Call for Proposals has been suspended due to COVID-19

The ALMA Director, on behalf of the Joint ALMA Observatory and the partner organizations in East Asia, Europe, and North America, is pleased to announce that the ALMA Cycle 8 Call for Proposals for scientific observations is now open.

As everyone is aware, the novel coronavirus COVID-19 continues to impact the global community.  As such, the ALMA Director, along with the regional partners, have decided to delay the proposal deadline for the ALMA Cycle 8 Call for Proposals to NO EARLIER than 1500 UT on 19 May, 2020.

Dual-anonymous proposal review process for ALMA Cycle 8

Published: 17 Mar 2020

ALMA is strongly committed to ensure that the proposal review process is as fair and impartial as possible. Analysis of the proposal rankings in previous cycles has identified systematics that may signify the presence of biases in the review process (see Systematics in the ALMA Proposal Review Rankings). In an effort to reduce biases as much as possible, ALMA will use a dual-anonymous proposal review process starting in Cycle 8.

Access ALMA data through ESASky

Published: 17 Mar 2020

We are happy to announce that, since March 16 it is also possible to inspect and download data from the Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array (ALMA) through ESASky (http://sky.esa.int). This has been possible thanks to a collaboration between the ESA's ESAC Science Data Centre (ESDC) and the ALMA Regional Centre (ARC) at the European Southern Observatory (ESO).

Special session during EAS 2020 on ALMA

Published: 25 Feb 2020

The European ALMA Regional Centre (EU ARC) offers support to a large community of researchers hosted by European institutions. The support is offered to the ALMA user community through seven ARC Nodes and a Centre of Expertise which are spread across Europe, as well as the central ARC which is at ESO. The aim of this Special Session during the annual meeting of the European Astronomical Society is to bring together European ALMA users and the researchers providing support at the different EU ARC Nodes. This is a great opportunity for current and future users of ALMA to discuss new scientific results, observation and data reduction strategies, foster collaborations, and brainstorm on development and implementation of software from the user community. Additionally, it offers the opportunity to identify the need for new capabilities, some of which could be implemented in the near future, such as data combination from different array configurations, pipeline products delivery, and archive mining.

More information can be found at the splinter session webpage. The deadline for abstract submissions is 2 March 2020.
