Announcement from the Italian Node
4-5 April 2017 - Istituto di Radioastronomia Bologna, Ita

In anticipation of the ALMA Cycle 5 proposal submission deadline of April 20th, the Italian node of the European ARC is organizing an "ALMA proposal preparation day" to support the ALMA users with the preparation of their proposals. This meeting will be held at the INAF-Istituto di Radioastronomia, Bologna, on 4-5 April.

On the morning of April 4th, a general introduction to interferometry will be presented for those participants who indicate interest in it on the registration form.

On April 4th in the afternoon we will present short tutorials on the ALMA Observing Tool and on proposal preparation, and two TAC members will give a presentation on their experience as members of the proposal selection committee. The next day will be dedicated to the interaction of the participants with the ARC staff to get support in preparing their own proposals for ALMA Cycle 5.

Participants are invited to bring their own laptop to better participate in the interactive sessions and to directly work on proposal preparation. On request, some computers could be made available by the LOC.

Please note that this activity is in addition to the usual "face-to-face" support that everybody can request at any time to the Italian ARC node via e-mail to, or through the ALMA help-desk (register and access via the link "Helpdesk" on the ALMA Science Portal) .

Further details, including programme and registration form, can be found on the ALMA propsal preparation day 2017 web page of the Itialan EU ARC node.
