European ARC Announcements are provided by ESO and the European ALMA Nodes that together make up the European ALMA Regional Centre Network.

ALMA ARC Postdoc Position: Short Spacings and polarization

Published: 02 Mar 2016

Announcement from the German Node
The German node of the European ALMA Regional Centre (ARC) invites applications for a postdoc position based at Bonn university.

The appointee is expected to support the technical and user support of ALMA, as well as conduct his/her self-defined research (50/50). Depending on his/her expertise, he/she shall work on single-dish integration efforts, including wavelet-based deconvolution tasks, or the development of polarization tools and calibration resources

The deadline for submission is 1 April 2016.

1-mm Very Long Baseline Interferometry including ALMA

Published: 26 Feb 2016

The call for 1-mm Very Long Baseline Interferometry (VLBI) proposals to use phased ALMA at Band 6 in Cycle 4, in collaboration with the Event Horizon Telescope Consortium (EHTC), will be released to coincide with the ALMA Cycle 4 Call for Proposals in March 2016. The EHTC is expected to comprise the Submillimeter Array, the James Clerk Maxwell Telescope, the Submillimeter Telescope, the Atacama Pathfinder Experiment, the South Pole Telescope, the Large Millimeter Telescope Alfonso Serrano, the IRAM 30m telescope, and an antenna from the Northern Extended Millimeter Array. 

Call for Proposals for APEX/SEPIA Band 9

Published: 18 Feb 2016

A new Band 9 receiver was installed inside the Swedish ESO PI receiver for Apex (SEPIA) at APEX in early February. This receiver, built by NOVA, is a copy of the ALMA Band 9 receiver, and covers frequencies from 600 to 722 GHz. After on-sky commissioning in late March, Science Verification (SV) observations are planned. Ideas for SV, which will allow testing of a large variety of observing modes for this new receiver, are encouraged.

The Call for Proposals for SEPIA Band 9 SV and further details can be found at the Call for Science Verification Proposals pagefor SEPIA Band 9.

ALMA Proposal Preparation Day 2016

Published: 18 Feb 2016

Announcement from the Italian Node
11-12 April 2015 - Osservatorio di Radioastronomia Bologna, Italy


In preparation to the ALMA Cycle 4 proposal submission deadline of April 21st, the Italian node of the European ARC is organizing an "ALMA proposal preparation day" to support the ALMA users to prepare their proposals. This meeting will be held at the INAF-Osservatorio di Radioastronomia, Bologna, on the 11-12th of April.

ALMA Cycle 4 Information for Large Programs

Published: 09 Feb 2016

As indicated in the Pre-announcement for the Cycle 4 Call for Proposals, the Joint ALMA Observatory (JAO) will accept proposals for Large Programs for the first time in Cycle 4. An announcement which provides guidelines to prepare a Large Program proposal can now be found on the ALMA Science Portal.

Conference Announcement: Half a Decade of ALMA

Published: 31 Jan 2016

Half a Decade of ALMA: Cosmic Dawns Transformed

This international four-day conference will highlight ALMA results at the threshold of the array's fifth year of science operations and bring together researchers from around the world to motivate collaborations for ALMA Cycle 5.
