Data Reduction Workshop - Feb 28-Mar 1, 2013

The NRAO North American ALMA Science Center is offering a two-day interactive ALMA Data Reduction workshop at NRAO Headquarters in Charlottesville, Virginia, on February 28 and March 1, 2013. The aim of this workshop is to assist interested observers in learning how to reprocess their ALMA data, and to allow new and potential ALMA users to become familiar with the data format and the tools available. The program includes a combination 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 recent Science Verification observations and emphasize key steps for ALMA Early Science data reduction. To gain the most from the workshop, interested participants may wish to work through one of the older Science Verification datasets available with an online tutorial at the ALMA Science Portal.

There will be a total of 30 desktops allowing at most 30 participants, so early registration is important. There is no registration fee, but we will not provide remote participation, so travel to Charlottesville is necessary. Information about the logistics of travel and lodging in Charlottesville will be available here.

The registration form can be found here, and the detailed program will be available soon. We look forward to seeing you!
