ALMA Archive and Imaging Pipeline Workshop

24-25 January 2017 – IRA Istituto di Radioastronomia, Bologna, Italy

The Italian node of the European ALMA Regional Center is pleased to announce a 1.5-days workshop dedicated to members of the ARC network on the archive and the imaging pipeline in Bologna on the 24th-25th of January. In this workshop, we would like to discuss the archive-related ongoing activities and the tools and programs that are being developed in its framework. The imaging pipeline plays a crucial role in achieving most of these purposes, so a session will be dedicated to it. In addition to the scheduled talks listed below, a few contributed talks on archive- or pipeline-related topics or archive mining science could be allocated.


The agenda is the following
