Netherlands ALMA Community Day – March 2, 2017

Allegro, the European ALMA Regional Center node in the Netherlands, is organizing a science day on Thursday March 2, 2017, at Leiden Observatory. For those interested, ALMA data reduction training with CASA will be offered on Friday March 3.

    This event will feature presentations on exciting recent results from ALMA by astronomers from the Allegro user community, the latest news from ALMA, and a plenary discussion on expectations and wishes for user support and any other ALMA-related topics. We will conclude the day with the Leiden Observatory General Astrophysics Colloquium that for the occasion of this workshop will have a special ALMA theme, and will be delivered by Dr. Mario Tafalla (OAN Madrid) on ‘ALMA observations of protostellar jets. Trying to understand the mechanism of outflow acceleration’.

    -Directions to Leiden Observatory

    Note that this is not the old Observatory in the center of Leiden.

    There are regular buses from the Leiden Centraal station, buses 43 (direction Den Haag) or bus 57 (direction Nieuw Vennep). These take around 7 minutes. Please see the link below for more specific details if you will be coming by bus.

    Instructions on how to get to Leiden Observatory, including transportation from Schiphol Airport, can be found here:
    And a site map can be found here:


    Note these specify the route to the Lorentz Center, which is in the forward leaning building in the photo. Leiden Observatory and Allegro offices are located on the 4th and 5th floor of that same building. The event will be held in the joining taller building – The Huygens building.

    -Directions inside the building:

    The event will be held on the 4th floor of the Huygens Building (HL), room HL 414. The Colloquium will be held in De Sitter Zaal in the Oort Building. Lunch will be provided in the canteen of the Gorlaeus Building.

    • Room HL-414 (Huygens Building):
