2017 European Radio Interferometry School

We are happy to announce that the Seventh European Radio Interferometry School will take place in Dwingeloo (The Netherlands) during the week

16 - 20 October 2017

ERIS will provide a week of lectures and tutorials on how to achieve scientific results from radio interferometry. The topics covered by the lectures/tutorials will include:
• Calibration and imaging of continuum, spectral line, and polarisation data;
• Low-freq. (LOFAR domain), high-freq. (ALMA/IRAM domain), and VLBI-interferometry; • Extracting information from the data and interpreting the results;
• Choosing the most suitable array and observing plan for your project.

Participants are expected to bring their own laptops, equipped with AIPS and CASA pre-installed. Examples will be drawn from m-, cm- and mm-wave instruments such as LOFAR, JVLA, EVN, e- MERLIN and ALMA.
The school will be hosted by ASTRON & JIVE (Dwingeloo). The participants and lecturers will be accommodated in local hotels. Participants will be sharing double rooms.
The registration fee is 165 euro (to be confirmed). It will cover the accommodation and half board for the 5 days of the school, from the arrival on Sunday 15 October 2017 to the departure on Friday 20 October 2017.

Please register via the school website, www.astron.nl/eris2017
Note that due to logistical limitations, we will be able to accommodate about 80 participants, so we encourage you to register as soon as possible.
