5th Netherlands ALMA Science Day: Nov 29, 2021

Allegro announces the 5th Netherlands ALMA Science Day, that will take take place on Monday, November 29, 2021. We are planning to host this meeting in person at Leiden Observatory; should the covid-19 regulations change, we will fall back to an online format.

At the Science Day, we will share the latest scientific results obtained with ALMA by the Netherlands astronomical community. We welcome contributions from all scientific fields. Our special guest speakers this year include Eva Schinnerer (MPIA Heidelberg) and Alice Booth (Leiden University). We will also hear the latest updates on the status of ALMA and the start of Cycle 8 2021. The meeting will allow ample time to discuss user experiences and other ALMA related topics.

Following the Science Day, we will also host an introductory CASA training on Tuesday November 30, 2021, also planned to be in-person at Leiden Observatory. Allegro fellows will introduce CASA and ALMA data reduction, share tips & tricks, and offer extensive hands-on training in data imaging and analysis.

Registration dates:
– November 15, 2021: Deadline for registering to present a talk and registering to attend the CASA training
– November 22, 2021: Deadline for registering to attend the Science Day talks
