PRESENTATIONS AND SCRIPTS

Netherlands ALMA Science Day — Nov 1, 2018

Allegro is organizing an ALMA Science Day on Thursday November 1st, 2018, at Leiden Observatory.

The day will start with a special ALMA Colloquium by Dr. Karin Öberg (Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics), who will tell us about the “Chemistry of Planet Formation”. We have reserved the afternoon for presentations by astronomers from the Allegro user community: We have exciting talks scheduled with ALMA results on galaxies, planet forming disks and star formation. In between and before the tea break, we will also have the latest news from ALMA followed by an open discussion on expectations and wishes for user support, and any other ALMA-related topics.

For those interested, an ALMA data reduction training with CASA will be offered on Friday November 2 at Allegro.

Sera Markoff and Remo Tilanus at Astronomy on Tap!

In the first event of the year of Astronomy on Tap in Leiden, Sera Markoff and Remo Tilanus will tell us about black holes and how they help us understand the Universe.

Sera Markoff is a professor at the Anton Pannekoek Institute for Astronomy at University of Amsterdam. She works at the interface of Astrophysics and Astroparticle Physics, and is interested in a variety of problems relating to the accretion process especially around black holes, both big and small.

Remo Tilanus is the Program Manager of ALLEGRO, the European ALMA Regional Center node at the Leiden Observatory, and the Scientific Program Manager of the Event Horizon mmVLBI camera: the first project to directly observe a black hole.

Astronomy on Tap features scientists and educators who speak of their passion for astronomy and research. Professional astronomers from the Leiden area hold informal presentations on a wide range of astronomical topics, every last Monday of the month at Grand Cafe De Burcht.

Contributions from Allegro to the EU ARC Newsletter

Contributions from Allegro team are highlighted in the new edition of the European ARC Newsletter.

You can find a summary on the critical work done by a team of Allegro members and JAO staff in the Cone Searches for High-Frequency and Long-Baselines projects, as well as a contribution related to the WVR Scaling Module.

The December 2017 European ARC Newsletter edition is available at this link.

Me@Allegro at the Leiden Science Run

Your local ARC node members will run in the Leiden Science Run 2017.

The race aims to gather donations for the Foundation for Refugee Students (UAF). The foundation provides advice for refugee students on their studies and integrating into the European education and jobs system(s). Further information regarding the foundation can be found at the official UAF website.

Our team is called ‘MeAllegro’ with the motto ‘coherently challenged’.
Please donate to support us using any of the following forms: donation1 or donation2.

By supporting our team you are also encouraging us to achieve better coherence over the ALMA long baselines data!

Allegro hosted the EU ARC All-hands meeting

During the last week of September the staff working in all the European ARC nodes had their yearly meeting in Den Dolder (NL) hosted by the Allegro node.

This yearly meeting brings together all the expertise in the network, in an unique occasion that allows us to share our experiences, strengthen our links and discuss pass, present and future developments.

We all are looking forward our next meeting organized by our colleagues at the Czech ARC node.
