The North American ALMA Science Center (NAASC) and the Cycle 10 ALMA Ambassadors have organized a series of workshops on the processing and analysis of ALMA data. These workshops will take place in September and October 2023. The goal of these events is to train users on basic data processing and analysis techniques that they may need to use ALMA for scientific discovery. Topics may include:

  • Imaging/cleaning of continuum and spectral line observations
  • Self-calibration
  • Imaging of data from multiple array configurations
  • Using the pipeline weblog and re-running the imaging pipeline
  • Using the Cube Analysis and Rendering Tool for Astronomy (CARTA) for image visualization and analysis
  • Science-ready data products
  • What's new in Common Astronomy Software Applications (CASA)
  • The ALMA press release process

Information on the locations and dates for these workshops is available on the NAASC Community Events webpage and in the table below. Early registration is encouraged to facilitate tailoring the workshops to the interests of the attendees.
