An IRAM staff astronomer is appointed as Local Contact to every A and B rated project without IRAM internal collaborator. He/she will assist you from the beginning to the end of your project should no IRAM astronomer be collaborating with you. Feel free to contact him/her after you get the project report with the recommendations of the program committee.
The role of the local contact is to help you set up the observing procedures. You should check the source coordinates and offsets for mosaics, the source velocity, the spectral configuration of the correlator and the observing frequencies. The local contact also helps you to arrange your stay in Grenoble and get started with data reduction. He/she will keep an eye on the data reduction and verify the data quality. His/her and your feedback are very important to improve on the system.
Note also, that NOEMA is operated as a service instrument by the IRAM staff. Observations are in general carried out without your presence on the site (in absentee).
Local contacts for the current and previous periods are:
