ALMA Cycle 8 2021 Pre-Announcement

Published: 17 Dec 2020

The Joint ALMA Observatory (JAO) is planning to start the observations for Cycle 8 2021 in October 2021. A Call for Proposals (CfP) with detailed information on the new cycle is anticipated to be issued in March 2021 and the deadline for proposal submission will be in April 2021. The purpose of this pre-announcement is to highlight aspects of the CfP to assist with early planning. It also contains information related to the proposal review process. 

Second European ALMA Regional Centre community assembly

Published: 11 Dec 2020

The European ALMA Regional Centre invites all European ALMA users to a virtual community assembly on December 18 at 11:00 CET, following the pre-announcement for Cycle 8 2021, scheduled for December 17. At this community meeting, the ALMA director will present the latest on the Return to Operations. You will then be presented with the timeline for the Call for Proposals, the capabilities and changes in the reviewing process for Cycle 8 2021. Finally, you will have the opportunity to ask your questions on all the above in a dedicated Q&A session.

Reserve the date: 18 December at 11:00 CET. The meeting can be accessed at this link. Looking forward to seeing you then!

ALMA2030: Development study to develop new SIS process kicks off

Published: 03 Dec 2020

A new development study, led by the Group for Advanced Receiver Development (GARD) at Chalmers University in Gothenburg, will develop new processes to fabricate small size Superconductor Insulator Superconductor (SIS) junctions, which are at the heart of the ALMA receivers

ALMA2030: Development study to design a wideband 200-400 GHz cold cartridge demonstrator kicks off

Published: 02 Dec 2020

A new development study, led by the Group for Advanced Receiver Development (GARD) at Chalmers University in Gothenburg, will complement the SIS process study to investigate the impact of a significant increase in the IF bandwidth on all the receiver components. 

Discover the new improvements and features of the ALMA Science Archive

Published: 24 Nov 2020

The recent software releases brought several new features and improvements in the ALMA Science Archive (ASA) which are now ready to be discovered.

I-TRAIN #1: Imaging with the ALMA Pipeline

Published: 23 Nov 2020

The European ARC Network is offering an online training on the ALMA Science Pipeline on December 4, 2020, 11:00 CET [Zoom link]. In this training session participants will learn how to run the ALMA Science Pipeline for their own scientific purposes. They will be guided on how to tweak different parameters of the pipeline tasks to produce cleaned data cubes from publicly available ALMA data. This will allow users to obtain products that are tailored to the specific requirements of their science projects.
