We would like to remind you that Allegro offers expert advice on proposal feasibility, preparation, and optimization, via e-mail, phone, skype or face-to-face visit. We are available to answer any question you have about your planned ALMA proposal and assist you with developing the technical case of your proposal.
Unlike earlier years, we are not planning any special events where we present the capabilities of the upcoming ALMA Cycle: this information is just as easily read on the ALMA Science Portal. Instead, we invite you to contact us wit specific questions about your proposal or about the ALMA capabilities. We are more than happy to help!
You can contact Allegro at firstname.lastname@example.org. Face-to-face support can also be requested via the ALMA Helpdesk. You are of course also very welcome to contact any of the Allegro staff directly.
