Netherlands ALMA+JWST Joint Science Day

Allegro is pleased to announce the first ALMA+JWST Joint Science Day, which will take place on January 30th, 2024, at Kapteyn Astronomical Institute (Room 161 on the 1st floor) in Groningen. We would like to invite all members of our communities to present your latest scientific results obtained with ALMA and/or JWST. A particular emphasis will be given to projects combining both instruments, but not exclusively, depending on demand. We invite contributions on the synergies with other facilities too. During the Science Day, we will also have talks related to ALMA and JWST technical aspects, news and outlook. The meeting will include ample time to discuss user experiences and related topics.

Invited speakers:

  • Karina Caputi (Kapteyn Astronomical Institute)
  • Łukasz Tychoniec (Leiden Observatory)
  • Martin Zwaan (ESO)
  • Nicolas Crouzet (Leiden Observatory)
