ALMA Cycle workshop and NL Submillimeter Day 20-21 June 2012

Joint ALMA Cycle 1 workshop and NL Submillimeter Day
Tuesday, 24 April 2012 15:58

We are happy to announce a two-day workshop on ALMA Cycle 1 scientific capabilities held jointly with a NL Submillimeter Day. The meeting will take place on Wednesday June 20 and Thursday June 21 at Leiden Observatory.

On the first day we will introduce the scientific capabilities for ALMA Cycle 1, which will run from January 1 2013 until November 2013, with a proposal deadline in mid July 2012. In the afternoon we will discuss (other) submillimeter developments in the Netherlands, and discuss future prospects.

On the second day, we will demonstrate the ALMA proposal preparation software, with an emphasis on the new capabilities compared to Cycle 0. This will be followed by a hands-on training using this software. The use of software to simulate ALMA observations of scientific targets will also be demonstrated.
