NRAO and the Department of Astronomy at the University of Texas at Austin will be hosting an NRAO Community Day on Friday, November 1 on the UT Austin Campus in the Peter O'Donnell Jr. Building, Room 2.302 from 9:00am to 5:30pm. We welcome participation from our colleagues at other nearby UT campuses.
This full-day event will be run by NRAO staff and tailored to the need to the host institutions and participants, to the extent possible. NRAO is particularly interested in reaching new users without expertise in radio astronomy, but more experienced users will also benefit.
In the first part of the workshop, NRAO representatives will provide an overview of radio astronomy and interferometry; how it relates to different scientific themes; an overview of NRAO facilities (ALMA, JVLA, GBT, VLBA); and the NRAO observing tool. The morning session will be most useful for attendees with no previous radio experience. The second part of the workshop will focus on using the ALMA observing tool and ALMA proposal preparation for the ALMA Cycle 2 deadline on December 5, 2013.
Registration update: NRAO CDs typically involve 15 to 25 people and our main registration was concluded on Oct 24 (with 27 participants), but we are happy to accommodate more participants if there is interest. However, we may not be able to fold the requests of late registrants into the program agenda.
After the workshop, participants should have sufficient background to propose for time on NRAO facilities and to analyze data taken from these telescopes. This event is free and without registration fee.
