Dwingelo, The Netherlands
The Seventh European Radio Interferometry School will feature a series of lectures and tutorials on radio interferometry. The topics of these sessions include calibration and imaging of data; low-frequency, high-frequency, and VLBI interferometry; methods for extracting measurements from and interpreting data; and information on preparing observing plans. The tutorials and examples in this workshop will feature data from LOFAR, JVLA, EVN, e-MERLIN, and ALMA. More information is available from the interferometry school's website.
25 - 28 October 2017
Polarization observations in the millimetre and submillimetre bands (30-1000 GHz) will become standard for ALMA and other facilities in the near future. This workshop has the goal of bringing together potential science users from multiple research backgrounds to discuss the possibilities presented by polarimetry and to set forward a strategy for future observations.
