Join the online ALMA training events
We present the continuation in 2021 of the I-TRAIN series with the European ARC Network, a regular series of Interactive Training in Reduction and Analysis of INterferometric data.
The events in February and March are described below. Future topics for the series to be covered after the ALMA Cycle 8 2021 Call for Proposals from May onwards include self-calibration, polarization and use of software tools. Please contact us by submitting a ticket to the ALMA HelpDesk (Department "General Queries) if you wish to provide your feedback on I-TRAIN.
Information on the I-TRAIN sessions, including legacy materials and link to YouTube videos from previous sessions, are available in the Science Portal I-TRAIN.
Upcoming ALMA or ALMA-related Meetings
Proposal Preparation Virtual Workshop - 22-26 March 2020
The UK ARC Node will host a Virtual Workshop on 22-26 March 2021. Its purpose is to help new ALMA users get started with their research, with a particular emphasis on proposal preparation for Cycle 8. The workshop will be conducted virtually using Zoom by staff from the UK ALMA Regional Centre (ARC) Node.
Although this event is aimed at UK researchers, participants from other countries are welcome to join. The workshop will be scheduled as a series of half-day sessions running an entire week and will cover the following topics:
- Introductions to ALMA and radio interferometry
- ALMA proposal preparation
- Using the ALMA Archive
- Calibrating and imaging ALMA data
At the end of the workshop, UK ARC Node staff will be available to help with any questions related to participants' specific research or to provide further assistance with proposal preparation. To participate in the workshop, please register here by the 17th of March.
Exploring the high-redshift Universe with ALMA
The aim of this virtual symposium, which will take place on 28-29 June 2021, is to bring together the observational and theoretical high-redshift ALMA communities in order to discuss the most recent results in the rapidly evolving field of galaxies at redshift z~4 and above. This symposium also aims to explore future synergies between ALMA and the Extremely Large Telescope (ELT), one of the future flagships of European Astronomy, for high-redshift science. The deadline for abstract submission is March 2, 2021 and more information about the Symposium can be found here.
