The Portuguese ALMA Centre of Excellence is organizing this workshop on ALMA data processing for both the Portuguese astronomical community and the overall European astronomical community.  This workshop will focus on data processing, but depending on the needs of the participants, may also include either introductory material or more advanced imaging and analysis.  The final program will be posted on the website before the event.

ALMA has been a revolutionary millimetre and submillimetre telescope, but as an interferometer, its large-scale mapping capabilities are limited, and it lacks the ability to recover large scale emission.  This workshop will discuss the possibilities for the development of a single dish telescope to complement ALMA's capabilities, which will include the formation of working groups to focus on the science and technology development of the telescope.

Recent advances in telescope instrumentation and observational techniques have allowed for imaging the surfaces of other stars.  This workshop will review the results obtained with multiple telescopes operating at multiple wavelengths, including ALMA.  Additionally, one of the sessions will be dedicated to observatioons to future facilities such as the ELT and JWST.  Additional details are on the meeting website.

After 12 years of operation, APEX continues to produce new science results, including surveying large areas for strong submillimetre sources and providing complementary long-wavelength data for observations from Spitzer, SOFIA, and Herschel.  This conference will bring people together to discuss their research results from APEX and to discuss the prospects for the next year.  Space is limited, so register as soon as possible.

The European Week of Astronomy and Space Science (EWASS, formerly JENAM) is the largest annual professional astronomy meeting in Europe. The next meeting, which will be held in conjunction with the National Astronomy Meeting, will be held in Liverpool. Several of the sessions may be of interest to ALMA users, including the following:

  • Galaxy formation through cosmic time: synergising theory and observations in the era of large facilities
  • The formation of stars and planets
  • Complex organic molecules in the Universe: current understanding and perspectives

See the conference website for more information.

The study of massive stars has been bolstered by the increased volume of data on these objects as well as the improved spatial dynamical range of the data, particularly data from ALMA.  This meeting will discuss recent results in the field of studying the multiple stages of massive star formation as well as discussing how future facitiies such as JWST, ELT, SKA, and ngVLA.
