Published: 23 Nov 2017

Announcement from the Italian Node
11-13 December 2017 - Istituto di Radioastronomia Bologna, Ita

The Italian ALMA Regional Centre organizes a 2-day workshop on self-calibration and advanced imaging, to be held at the INAF-Istituto di Radioastronomia (Bologna, Italy) on 11-13 December 2017.

The main purpose of this short workshop is to obtain a better  understanding of the self-calibration and advanced imaging techniques, in particular on ALMA data. It will be a unique opportunity for the participants, who are expected to be advanced users, to familiarize themselves with these techniques and to discuss about them in an informal way with experts in the field. During the hands-on sessions participants can possibly work on their own datasets, receiving help from the experts and discussing with the other participants. A "backup" dataset will be also made available.

Lectures will be held by Ed Fomalont (NRAO/Chile), Anita Richards (UK ARC Node), and Robert Laing (SKA office, Manchester).

Please note that the workshop will be limited to 30 participants. The available places will be allocated on a "first come first serve" basis.
