Seven sessions for each topic, with possibility to extend into last 1/2 of 4th day
Have workshop dinner on 3rd day (Dome Room, Rotunda)
Showcase of results from NRAO facilities beyong ALMA:
- EVLA results - obs for 1 year, will have results from BMA by March. Prefer to integrate EVLA results into individual scientific sessions. Claire can help with this.
- Prefer to display to integrate GB, VBLA and EVLA results rather than as separate sessions.
- 3 introductory 1/2 hour talks at the beginning presenting the 3 instrumentsto give people an overview of current capabilities of instruments (Crystal)
- Science driven approach
How much Early Science results may we have by March? Some preliminary results, but more verification results by March (Crystal). There will be no embargo on verification results, but would people have it long enough to make sense of it? If there are CSV results, leave to presenters to decide if there is anything to say.
Timing: Mar 3-6
Dome Room - 105 seated dinner or reception
