ALMA Novice-User Workshop 2010

2010 November 20 and December 18


The University Consortium of ALMA-Taiwan (UCAT) is pleased to host one two-day workshop for novice ALMA users in Taiwan.

      The workshop, co-sponsored by ASIAA, is designed especially for graduate students and colleagues without (strong) radio or interferometer background. The workshop targets at layman users, and will introduce the functionality, capability and usefulness of ALMA on various sciences in astrophysics. This UCAT workshop is practically a prerequisite in preparation for more advanced ALMA user workshops to be held later by Taiwan ALMA Regional Center (Taiwan-ARC) of ASIAA.
The programs of the two ALMA Novice-User Workshops include:

Date and Venue
November 20 (Saturday): Rm S102 of the Research Building (教學研究大樓) on Shida's Science Campus (師大分部)
