Programme

The programme for the school will be similar to the one for ERIS 2017 in Dwingeloo. It will cover:
  • Calibration and imaging of continuum, spectral line, and polarization data;
  • Observing techniques for low frequencies (e.g. LOFAR), intermediate frequencies (e.g. VLA and e-MERLIN), high frequencies (e.g. ALMA and NOEMA), and VLBI (e.g. EVN);
  • Extracting the information from astronomica​l data and interpreting the results;
  • Choosing the most suitable array and observing plan for your project.​
