ALMA day 2008
9 May 2008: ALMA community day
The Italian ARC organizes this day to bring together the Italian community of future ALMA users.
This meeting aims to inform the community of recent developments at ALMA and the Italian Regional Centre. We also hope that this day will be an occasion for the community to interact with representatives of ESO, INAF, and the Italian ARC. The meeting will take place at the Istituto di Radioastronomia, Bologna.
Those who wish to participate are kindly requested to send an email to Jan Brand (firstname.lastname@example.org) BEFORE 15 April 2008.
