Large programmes, defined as programmes requesting more than 50 hours of observing time, have been offered since Cycle 4 and can be used to perform major surveys.  Prior large programs have targeted protoplanetary discs, evolved stars, nearby galaxies, gravitational lenses, and deep fields.

This workshop will discuss ALMA large programmes that are currently being observed or have been observed. This will include descriptions of the publicly accessible data available from the programmes as well as the opportunity to propose new programmes and the requirements for successful large programme.

There will also be the opportunity for hands-on training and support to work with staff at the ARC Node on data from large or other ALMA programmes after the workshop as well as support for the preparation of proposals for ALMA Cycle 8. Support for work with other interferometric datasets is also available.

The proposal deadline for ALMA Cycle 8 is 15 April.
