ALMA Science and Proposals Workshop

25-27 February 2019 - Istituto di Radioastronomia Bologna, Italy

In view of the upcoming ALMA Cycle 7 proposal submission deadline on 17 April 2019, the Italian node of the European ALMA Regional Centre organizes a mini-workshop to bring together actual and potential ALMA users. It will be an opportunity to hear the latest scientific results and to start thinking about possible proposals and share ideas.

We encourage in particular PhD students and young researchers to attend.

We will have presentations by astronomers from the Italian community, reviewing ALMA contributions to a wide range of scientific areas:

  • Interstellar Medium: Eugenio Schisano (INAF-IAPS Roma)
  • Star Formation: Silvia Leurini (INAF-Oss. Cagliari)
  • Evolved Stars
  • AGN/Local Universe: Claudia Cicone (INAF-Oss. Brera)
  • High-z: Paolo Cassata (DFA-Univ. Padova)
  • Galaxy clusters: Myriam Gitti (DIFA-Univ. Bologna)
  • Transients: Piergiorgio Casella (INAF-Oss. Roma)

A brief overview of ALMA technical details and of the proposal preparation tools will be also given by the ARC-staff.

     Each invited speaker has been allotted a slot of one hour, which
     is comprised of a talk of 30-40 min and the remainder is available for
     questions and/or discussion. We hope that this ample time slot will create
     a relaxed atmosphere, when we don't have to worry about running late.


Registration is now closed. Please contact the Italian ARC:
