5-9 June 2023
In the late spring of 2023, from 5-9 June, JIVE will be hosting the third edition of the CASA VLBI workshop. The aim of this workshop is to train participants on data processing and imaging of VLBI observations with the CASA package. Though the focus will be on continuum astronomical experiments, other applications of VLBI will be discussed. Participants are expected to have a basic understanding of radio interferometry, but do not need to be experts. Introductory lectures on VLBI and CASA will be part of the programme.
17-26 May 2023
In this school - organised in Milano (italy) - the students will do a 'Phase A' study of an instrument. They will plan an instrument in small groups led by an experienced tutor. During the first week the mornings are dedicated to lectures and the afternoons to group work. During the second week the students will concentrate on group work. At the end of the school all groups will present their instrument plans.
This meeting will be a 1-day working ‘all-hands’ face-to-face meeting for the ORP Joint Activity 2- Seamless Performance.
The meeting will comprise of:
20 February - 20 March 2023 (each Monday)
The school will include an introduction to how proposals are reviewed by Time Allocation Committees (TACs), unconscious bias in proposal review and the (double-)blind proposal review system. The students will take part in group work that involves forming mini-TACs to review a set of professionally written proposals to gain experience on the process. There will also be sessions on building a science and technical case for their own proposals, with expert advice from tutors on what to do and avoid when writing an observing proposal.
