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.

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.

This symposium is being held to honour the Professor Anneila Sargent's work on star and planet formation and the development of millimetre and submillimetre astronomy.  The science talks will highlight recent research results in the field, with a heavy emphasis on results from ALMA, and will also discuss possible work with future facilities.  More information is at the conference website.

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.
