The next call for ESO ALMA development studies is expected to be announced in November 2022, with a provisional deadline in January 2023. In this call, ESO will solicit proposals for external development studies to upgrade a broad range of ALMA systems. Studies that follow the scientific priorities outlined in the ALMA 2030 roadmap are particularly encouraged, such as upgrades of the IF bandwidth by a factor up to 4 compared to the current system.

An overview of development studies from the past four calls, which have been issued on a three year cycle, can be found here. For more information on the development studies, please contact the coordinator of the ALMA development studies (cdebreuc@eso.org).
