The Modern Radio Universe
This conference will try to highlight the original and exciting science currently being produced by radio astronomical telescopes, such as the GBT, Effelsberg, LOFAR, ALMA, the JVLA, GMRT, eMERLIN, EVN, VLBA, as well as pathfinder experiments of the SKA, and others.Science areas that will be discussed are among others: Cosmology, galaxy evolution, AGN and compact objects, star formation, interstellar medium, The Milky Way and Galactic science, radio transients, fundamental and astroparticle physics, extreme physics and associated theory. The conference will be held in
Bonn, Germany, on April 22-26, 2013.
Transformational Science with ALMA: From Dust to Rocks to Planets Formation and Evolution of Planetary Systems
In this workshop, investigators from around the world will meet in Hawaii to explore the evolution of material in protostellar disks from formation to dissipation. A focus of the workshop will be the processing of the gas and dust components, and the growth of planetesimals. It will also explore chemical changes, and radiative signatures at millimeter and submillimeter wavelengths. The workshop will take place in the Big Island of Hawaii, USA, on April 8-12, 2013
Magnetic Fields in the Universe IV: From Laboratory and Stars to Primordial Structures
This meeting will cover a wide range of topics, bringing together experts in theory, experiments, observations and modeling of magnetized plasmas. The scientific goal of the conference is to provide a continuation of the previous editions. Some issues to be addressed are: laboratory plasmas, magnetic fields in stars, ISM, and protostars, primordial magnetic fields, magnetic reconnection, etc. The conference will be held n Playa del Carmen, Mexico, on February
Astrochemistry in the ALMA era
This workshop aims to review and discuss the results of ongoing surveys especially in view of the need of high angular resolution requirements for proper analysis and line identification. The full ALMA array will provide the much needed image fidelity and sensitivity to determine whether complex molecules originate at the same or different locations. The workshop will be held in Copenhagen, Denmark, January 28-31, 2013
Solar ALMA workshop
The workshop aims to bring together the ALMA-minded solar community to discuss solar observational issues with ALMA, solar science and planned observations with ALMA, and the planning of solar ALMA observations. The workshop will
take place in School of Physics and Astronomy, University of Glasgow, UK, on January 14-17, 2013
International ALMA conference "The first year of ALMA science"
The ALMA Joint Observatory announces that the international conference "The first year of ALMA science" will be held in Hotel Cumbres Patagonicas, Puerto Varas, Chile on December 12-15, 2012. The ALMA users community will be in a position to review the first science results produced by this new and unique facility. The conference will cover all the ALMA Science topics covered by Early Science observations, from observations of the Solar System bodies to objects in our own Galaxy, the local to high redshift Universe.
Advanced Chilean astro-engineering school-workshop
The sky in northern Chile is the best in the world for astronomy and the biggest telescopes are here. The Astro-Engineering is the technical junction between astronomy and engineering for the development of technology for astronomical instruments. This workshop is the first opportunity to congregate astronomers and engineers to discuss
telescopes, instruments and the next big projects to be built in Chile. The workshop will be held in Santiago,
Chile, on November 27-30.
ADVANCED RADIO ASTRONOMY - Commissioning Skills and Preparation for the SKA
This workshop will communicate skills that you need to help comission a radio interferometry array or work on early science data. The new arrays coming into operation have all found a shortage of scientists able and willing to help troubleshoot early science. Talks and discussion sessions will share best practices between people working on the arrays, lessons from comissioning scientists and the experiences of working on early science data. The workshop
will take place at the JBCA, University of Manchester, UK, on November 13-16.
International Symposium on Frontiers in Radio Astronomy
This meeting will focus on recent development in radio astronomy and to explore the promises of FAST early science operation. It is hosted by National Astronomical Observatories of China and the Joint Center for Astronomy, with support from the Chinese Academy of Sciences, National Natural Science Foundation of China, and the Ministry of Science and Technology of China. The symposium will be held in Guiyang, China between Oct 29th and Nov 3rd.
ALMA splinter meeting at the AG meeting in Hamburg
The annual meeting of the Astronomische Gesellschaft 2012 will take place in Hamburg on 24-28 September 2012, commemorating the 100th anniversary of the Hamburg Observatory in Hamburg Bergedorf. In this context, the German ARC node organizes the splinter meeting "First science with ALMA" on Friday, 28 September. We invite ALMA users working on Cycle 0 or Science Verification data to to present their first scientific results. In addition, we encourage prospective ALMA users to talk about their science projects and ALMA-related results.
German ALMA Community Days 2012
The next German ALMA Community Days will take place in Bonn on 05/06 June 2012.
The goal of the meeting is to review Cycle 0 outcomes and to
prepare the community for ALMA Cycle 1 proposals and observations.
Astronomy Meeting 2012
The German-UK Astronomy meeting and Royal Astronomical Society National Astronomy
Meeting (NAM 2012) will take place in Manchester, UK on 27-30 March 2012.
During the meeting, there will be an ALMA session and an ALMA lunch meeting on 27/28 March.
The German, UK and ESO ARC nodes will be present with an ALMA
stall during the whole meeting. More information can be found in the news
meeting of the Astronomische Gesellschaft 2011
The annual meeting 2011 of the Astronomische Gesellschaft will take place at Heidelberg University,
on 19-23 September 2011. The ESO and the German ARC nodes will be present with an information booth during the whole meeting of the Astronomische Gesellschaf.
German ALMA Early Science
Community Day 2011
The goal of the meeting is to
prepare the community for Early Science with ALMA. The event
will be held on February 16-17th
of Universität Bonn.
