ALMA2019: Science Results and Cross-Facility Synergies

Published: 15 Feb 2019

Cagliari, Italy 14–18 October 2019

The Atacama Large Millimeter/Submillimeter Array (ALMA) is the world’s most sensitive facility for millimeter/submillimeter astronomical observations, and will soon be fully operational in all of the originally planned bands. Since its first observations, ALMA has routinely delivered groundbreaking scientific results that span nearly all areas of astrophysics. Following conferences in Puerto Varas (Chile, 2012), Tokyo (Japan, 2014), and Indian Wells (USA, 2016), the ALMA partnership is organising the next ALMA Science Conference in Cagliari this October. Registration will open in the second week of March.

At ALMA2019 we expect to discuss the full breadth of ALMA science, with special emphasis on results from the first rounds of ALMA Large Programmes, the long baselines and high frequency capabilities, the new Solar and VLBI modes, as well as the synergy between ALMA and other observatories. As in previous editions of the conference series, we expect to discuss the scientific priorities for the implementation of the ALMA Development Roadmap.

Please see the webpage for more details. Abstracts are due by 15 May 2019 with notifications of talks by 1 July 2019.
