Haystack to host NRAO/ALMA Community Day for scientists
MIT Haystack Observatory will be hosting an NRAO/ALMA Community Day event for local scientists and engineers in related fields April 3–4, 2023. This workshop aims to introduce the radio facilities operated by the National Radio Astronomy Observatory (NRAO) to the local community, and to facilitate data access and proposal preparation for potential and current users among the science community.
The organizers strongly encourage the participation of students and astronomers in different related fields. Science cases achievable with the Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array (ALMA) will be presented by experts, including a hands-on session on proposal preparation and data access.
The NRAO/ALMA Community Day workshop will cover the following key topics:
- Radio interferometry basics
- Introduction to the NRAO facilities (VLA/VLBA/ALMA)
- Recent studies using ALMA (protoplanetary disks, evolved stars, galaxies)
- Pipeline and data archive access
- Proposal preparation
The NRAO/ALMA Community Day workshop will take place April 3–4, 2023, from 9:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. at MIT Haystack Observatory in Westford, Massachusetts. Space is limited, and we encourage you to register as soon as possible to secure your spot. Registration is free, and lunch will be provided for participants. The deadline for registration is March 30, 2023.
