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.
