20 - 24 March 2017

Puerto Varas, Chile


Observations of molecular line absorption and emission have been particularly important for studying a vast range of astronomical phenomena, including star and planet formation, mass loss from evolved stars, formation of interstellar structures in galaxies, and formation of the first protogalaxies in the high-redshift universe.  To study these phenomena, it is important to understand the astrochemistry behind the molecules producing the emission, and ALMA has been one of several telescopes to play a critical role in advancing research on astrochemistry.  This symposium will bring together observers, modellers, theorists, and laboratory astrochemists to discuss the the most recent developments in this subfield of astronomy.  More information, including registration information and logistical information, is available on the conference website.



11 - 13 April 2017

University of Warwick

Coventry, United Kingdom


Both the RAS/RSC Astrophysical Chemistry Group (ApChem) meeting and the AstroSurf 2017 meeting will be held conjunctly at the University of Warwick this year.  Both meetings are part of the Faraday Joint Interest Group Conference, which is a broad multidisiplinary conference focused on physical chemistry.  Additional meeting information and registration information are available on the conference website.



26 - 30 June 2017

Charles University

Prague, Czech Republic


The European Week of Astronomy and Space Science brings together astronomers from across Europe every year to discuss a broad range of topics in astronomy.  This year's meeting features a session devoted to ALMA science results (SS20).  The conference website has the full program and additional meeting information.



02-06 July 2017

University of Hull

Hull, United Kingdom


This year's National Astronomy Meeting will cover a broad range of topics, a few of which have specific connections to ALMA-related research.  The detailed program and registration information are available from the conference webpage.



24 - 26 July 2017

The University of Manchester

Manchester, United Kingdom


The goal of this workshop is to bring together people who are exploring the ways to measure star formation rates in the radio, millimetre, and submillimetre bands using telescopes such as ALMA, eMERLIN, jVLA, MeerKAT, and ASKAP as well as to discuss potential future work with the ngVLA and SKA.  More information and registration information is available on the meeting website.



31 July - 02 August 2017

Durham University


This conference is devoted to the study of submillimetre galaxies over the past 20 years.  The agenda will cover a broad range of topics related to these astronomical objects and will probably include a substantial amount of material related to recent ALMA results.  More information is on the coference webpage.



19 - 26 August 2017

Palais des congres de Montreal

Montreal, Quebec, Canada


This large meeting organized by the International Union of Radio Science (URSI) will cover a broad range of topics related to radio waves, including meteorology and atmospheric science, radio communication, remote sensing, plasma physics, radio astronomy, and biophysics.  The radio astronomy portion of the meeting will include multiple sessions related to ALMA.  The conference website provides complete information on the topics that will be discussed and registration information.
