アルマワークショップ

2024年度前期 アルマワークショップの公募

The NAOJ ALMA project invites proposals for the ALMA workshop 2024a call. Funding will be available for organizing face-to-face or hybrid meetings. Other organization support will be available for virtual meetings. The ALMA workshop program provides a unique opportunity for the Japanese community members to hold dedicated workshops that are closely related to the scientific and technical aspects of the ALMA telescope. The scope of the workshop can be, for example, detailed planning for the upcoming ALMA proposal call, the formation of new research groups, or the development of new instruments related to the ALMA telescope. Workshops aimed specifically at the upcoming proposal call are highly encouraged.

Please read the following important points before filling out your application.
