The ALMA Reginal Centre (ARC) provides user support for all levels of ALMA users. It also serves as a basis for public outreach and a training site that offers specialized courses, schools, and workshops to advance the knowledge of radio-interferometric techniques and science.
In addition to the general tasks of an ARC node, the German ARC node focusses on several specific areas of expertise including:
- The development of advanced data analysis tools
- Maintainance and upgrade of the Cologne Database for Molecular Spectroscopy (CDMS)
- Polarization calibration and observation optimization
- mm-VLBI with ALMA

First announcement: German ALMA Community Days & Proposal Workshop 2015
With construction and basic commissioning of the Atacama Large
Millimeter/submillimeter Array (ALMA) drawing to a close, the Joint ALMA
Observatory (JAO) will issue a Call for Proposals for Cycle 3 on 24
March 2015. The deadline is expected to be on 23 April 2015, with
observations starting in October 2015.
To prepare the local astronomical community for Cycle 3, the German ARC
node organizes the German ALMA Community Days & Proposal Workshop 2015
at the Argelander-Institut für Astronomie in Bonn on 25-27 March 2015.
The first day will feature a brief introduction to the basic radio
astromonical concepts and terminology for non-radio astronomers. On the
second day, several talks will highlight recent scientific results
obtained with ALMA, before ALMA's capabilities in Cycle 3, ALMA
procedures, ALMA tools and the available help will be presented. The
third day will be dedicated to hands-on work in workshops for novice
users as well as for advanced users. During these workshops,
participants can start to prepare their own ALMA proposals with
technical support from experts.

ARTISTWithin the framework of the ASTRONET programme, "Common Tools for Future Large Submillimeter Facilities", we have initiated a project, "Adaptable Radiative Transfer Innovations for Submillimeter Telescopes (ARTIST)", to develop a next generation model suite for comprehensive multi-dimensional radiative transfer calculations of the dust and line emission, as well as their polarization.
More information on the project can be found at the ARTIST homepage.
