IRAM 30m Summerschool 2019

Millimeter Astronomy

September 06-13, 2019 in Pradollano near Granada, Spain

 

This is the first announcement of the 9th IRAM 30-meter Summer School on Millimeter Astronomy that will take place in September, 6-13 in the ski resort of Pradollano, in the Spanish Sierra Nevada, at only 15 minutes driving distance from the IRAM 30-meter telescope. On-line registration will open shortly.

The school will combine lectures on millimeter astronomy with observations using the 30-meter telescope. Lectures will be given by experienced scientists and 30-meter observers, covering a wide range of topics, from comets and planetary atmospheres in he solar system to the study of the chemistry of interstellar clouds, low and high mass star formation, in the Milky Way, in nearby galaxies, and in ultra-luminous objects at high-redshifts. These lectures will be complemented by lectures on instrumentation, observing techniques, and data processing.

In addition, the students, lecturers and technical assistants will form small groups, to work on one topic, preparing a science case, conducting the observations with the 30-meter telescope, reduce the data, and present first results on the last day of the school.

The school will run over one week from Friday to Friday, with six days of about 4 hours of lectures per day, leaving ample time for the observations and for the group work. Both Fridays are arrival and departure days (the final session on Friday morning will be devoted to work group presentations).


The school is aimed at attracting news scientists to current and future single-dish millimeter and sub-millimeter facilities. The school is primarily meant for researchers with little previous experience in mm-astronomy. It is limited to about 40 students who will be selected on the basis of their interests, experience, and references. The selection criteria will take into account gender balance and other ethical considerations.

This event has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 730562.

The school pages will be available very soon in the IRAM web site. For reference, the information of the previous school edition (September 2015) can be consulted here
