Centimetre-Sub-Millimetre Q&U (and V) European Southern Observatory Workshop (QUESO)

Published: 11 Jun 2017

ESO Workshop, Garching, Germany, 25–27 October 2017

Full polarisation observation has been routine at the Karl G. Jansky Very Large Array (JVLA) and will become standard for the Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array (ALMA) in the mm and sub-mm wavelength bands (30–1000 GHz) in near future. The aim of the QUESO workshop is to bring together leading and potential science users of mm/sub-mm polarimetry, from research fields including AGN, star formation, solar observations and CMB, with observatory calibration experts and software developers.

Starting with the existing facilities and the prospective capabilities, the workshop aims to stimulate discussion about the most critical scientific cases, some of which may require developments of the next generation observational and calibration techniques to achieve the requested precision. Cross disciplinary scientific or technical collaborations will also be encouraged, such as sharing data modeling and analysis tools.

Further details on the QUESO webpage or by email. The abstract deadline is 15 August 2017 and the registration deadline 30 September 2017.
