ALMA Proposal Preparation Day – March 26, 2020 in Leiden (11:00 – 17:00)

Leading up to the ALMA Cycle 8 proposal submission deadline, Allegro will be hosting a Proposal Preparation Day. The Allegro staff will present the new ALMA capabilities in Cycle 8 and discuss various techniques that help make your proposals stand out. You will have the opportunity to bring in your proposals and we will assist you with technical aspects and help you explore the feasibility of your project. There will be time allocated for you to work on your proposals while we will be available to answer your questions and provide tips and tricks. A detailed schedule will be provided soon.

You can register for the Proposal Preparation Day at the following link.

Additionally, you can always e-mail us or drop by the Allegro office to ask for support at any time.

We would like to highlight the possibility to submit Large Programs on both the main array (>50 hours) and ACA stand-alone (>150 hours). PIs who are considering a Large Program are encouraged to contact Allegro early to optimize your program and explore the many ways we can support your project.
