Sexten Centre for Astrophysics

Sexten, Italy


This workshop will bring together observers working with ALMA to plan for observing with the next generation of high angular resolution optical and near-infrared telescopes (JWST and ELT).  The focus will be on how to use the high angular resolution from each of these telescopes to perform multiwavelength spectroscopic science.  Aside from the focus on this specific technique, astronomers from any scientific background are invited to attend, although the number of participants in the workshop will be limited.

Lorentz Center

Leiden, Netherlands


The combination of data from inteferometric radio/millimetre arrays and single antennas has become increasingly common in recent years, yet the process remains technically challenging. This workshop will bring together people with a range of expertise in these techniques to discuss the various ways of combining these data. Additionally, the workshop will include hands-on sessions for testing the various data combination methods.

Dublin Institute for Advanced Studies

Dublin, Ireland


The annual Young European Astronomers Conference brings together early career astronomers to discuss new science results in radio astronomy. This year's conference is being hosted by the Dublin Institute for Advanced Studies. More information is available on the meeting website.

Bologna, Italy


ALMA has opened up new possibilities in studying the interstellar medium in galaxies, ranging from detailed measurements of the properties of molecular clouds in nearby galaxies to surveys of gas in high-redshift sources.  This meeting will bring people together to discuss the latest results from ALMA's investigation of these topics as well as the way forward in this field of research.

Pradollano, Spain

This training workshop, aimed primarily at junior researchers new to millimetre astronomy, will focus on working with the IRAM 30-meter telescope and will include talks by both IRAM support staff and astronomers who use the facility.  The talks will include both science talks covering a range of astronomical topics and technical talks covering the practicalities of using the telescope.  Participants will also have the opportunity to observe with the telescope, process the data, and present the results from the observations.

Yorkshire Museum, York UK


The organisers are pleased to announce a conference on the formation and early evolution of massive star clusters. The aim of the conference is to bring together the communities who study the properties of the natal giant molecular clouds, with those who study the stellar populations. The conference will combine observational and theoretical aspects, with topics including:

  • The global picture of young star clusters and giant molecular clouds in the Galaxy.
  • Properties of star forming clouds.
  • Evolution of molecular clouds: feedback and dissipation.
  • Population and structures of young clusters and OB associations.
  • Dynamics of young clusters and OB associations.
  • Protostars in clusters.

The abstract submission deadline is 30th June 2019, and the registration deadline is 31st July 2019.

Beurs Van Berlage

Amsterdam, Netherlands


Multiple observatories, including ALMA, are currently producing spectroscopy observations that cover bandwidths of several GHz with spectral resolutions of ~100 kHz.  Processing the data requires the development of new signal processing techniques.  The focus of this workshop is to bring together both astronomers and software developers to look at the scientific topics being studied with these telescopes and the technical challenges behind making these studies possible.
