European ARC Announcements

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

ALMA Cycle 4 Pre-announcement

Published: 15 Dec 2015

The Joint ALMA Observatory (JAO) will start the next cycle of observing (Cycle 4) in October 2016. A Call for Proposals with detailed information on Cycle 4 will be issued in March 2016, with a deadline for proposal submission in April 2016. New opportunities in Cycle 4 include ACA stand-alone mode, Large Programs, millimetre-wavelength VLBI, and solar observations.

Nordic ARC Software Tools

Published: 07 Dec 2015

Announcement from the Nordic Node
The Nordic ARC node has prepared a suite of software tools for analysis of primarily ALMA but also other interferometric data. Most tools are developed for use with CASA, but are in many cases general and adaptable to other packages.

ALMA Cycle 4 Events at the Nordic ARC Node

Published: 04 Dec 2015

Announcement from the Nordic Node
In connection with the call for proposals for ALMA Cycle 4 the Nordic ARC node will be arranging workshops to provide direct, hands-on help with proposal preparation. In addition to general ALMA workshops, we will this time arrange science oriented workshops to give more focus on the scientific areas of interest to the Nordic region. All meetings are open to all ALMA users, although preference will be given to participants from the Nordic regions.

On 11 Nov 2015, the EU ARC delivered the first science data (a ToO observation) of Cycle 3 to PIs.
This came closely after the release of the new CASA version 4.5 on 29 Oct 2015 (see http://casa.nrao.edu) which is needed to process Cycle 3 data.

ALMA Fellowships

Published: 15 Nov 2015

The Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array (ALMA) is now offering postdoctoral fellowship positions to join the ALMA science operations group. Fellows will be based in the Santiago Central Office in Chile, with eventual shifts to the ALMA Operations Support Facility (OSF) near San Pedro de Atacama for real-time interaction with the telescope. Full details here.

Report on ALMA Cycle 3 Proposal Review

Published: 07 Oct 2015

A detailed report on the outcome of the ALMA Early Science Cycle 3 Proposal Review Process is available. The report details the proposal review process, proposal statistics and regional distributions, the proposal distribution across science categories and receiver bands, as well as the anticipated observing pressure as a function of Local Sidereal Time and configuration. The accepted high priority Cycle 3 projects are listed here.
