ALMA workshop: science-related issues

 

The Atacama Large Millimeter Array (ALMA) project is an international collaboration between Europe and North America to build an array of 64x12m telescopes that will operate at millimeter and submillimeter wavelengths at the high-altitude (5000m) Chajnantor site in Chile. It will provide a major leap forward in (sub)millimeter astronomy, allowing fundamental questions in the formation of galaxies, stars and planets to be addressed. The aim of this workshop is three-fold:

 

        stimulate interaction between the ALMA and Herschel-HIFI communities on issues of common interest, in particular calibration, data analysis and modeling

 

        discuss face-to-face the workplan for the European ALMA science IPT in 2003, in particular regarding calibration

 

        work on ALMA proposals in connection with the EU FP6 Framework announcement of opportunity
