A new class of astronomy postgraduate students will be starting their studies this autumn, and many students will be working with ALMA data. The purpose of this workshop is to help new students get started with their ALMA research. The agenda will include introductions to ALMA and interferometry, instructions on using the ALMA archive, and hands-on activities with re-calibrating and imaging ALMA data.

The workshop will be conducted by staff from the UK ALMA Regional Centre (ARC) Node using Zoom. Participants will also need to download and install CASA version 5.6.1 to participate in some of the hands-on activities.

People interested in the workshop can register before 5 November. See the meeting page for the agenda and more details about the meeting.

ALMA as well as other telescopes have pushed the boundaries on what is known about planet formation by producing resolved images of protoplanetary discs, revealing rings, gaps, and spiral structures not seen before.  This workshop seeks to bring together researchers to discuss these new findings and to explore the new paradigm of planet formation as well as to plan observations with the next generation of telescopes.
