We will provide an introduction to reduction of ALMA data. The program includes a mixture of lectures and hands-on sessions aimed at introducing the key concepts in interferometry data reduction and demonstrating their application in CASA. Hands on examples will focus on real ALMA data obtained during the Science Verification campaigns and emphasize key steps for real ALMA data reduction.
For this meeting we will be broadcasting the powerpoint slides through your web browser, and we be broadcasting both audio and video separately and simultaneously. Participants should both

call in via either telephone or videoconference. This way you will be able to both hear and see the slides.
