The European ALMA Regional Centre network is organising an ALMA School for ALMA users, hosted by the UK ARC Node on 10 - 14 June 2024 in Manchester. This school is designed to provide training on a broad range of aspects related to ALMA, including interferometry, data calibration and imaging, the ALMA archive, analysis techniques, ALMA science and future ALMA developments.

The school is aimed at intermediate-level researchers (i.e., PhD students, postdocs, and early career scientists) together with novice users who are considering using ALMA for the first time – showing both what ALMA can do for their research and how to maximise the science return from ALMA observations.

The school will be hosted by the Jodrell Bank Centre for Astrophysics on the University of Manchester campus in the UK with a half-day trip to the Jodrell Bank Observatory and the 76m Lovell Telescope (See Images)
