Seventh NAIC/NRAO Single-Dish Summer School

Arecibo Observatory
July 10 – 17, 2013

First Announcement

NAIC (Arecibo) and NRAO (Green Bank) are organizing the seventh NAIC-NRAO school on single-dish radio astronomy. This will be held during 10-17 July 2013 at the Arecibo observatory in Puerto Rico. The objective of the school is to provide graduate students, post-docs, and experts in other fields of astronomy with both knowledge and practical experience of the techniques and applications of single-dish radio astronomy.

The school will be based around an intensive series of lectures from experts. A significant part of each participant’s time at the school will be spent performing a hands-on radio-astronomy project. For this, they will make observations with either the Arecibo 305-m telescope or the Green Bank 100-m (GBT) telescope, analyze the data acquired, and interpret the results.

The primary goals of the school are:

Both lecturers and participants are invited to contribute posters describing research conducted with single dishes.

The number of participants will be limited to approximately 45 people. A registration fee of $250 will include: travel between San Juan airport and Arecibo Observatory, the welcome reception, lunches during the school, social events, and the school banquet. Participants will be housed either at the Observatory or in nearby hotels. They are expected to cover the cost of their travel to Puerto Rico, lodgings and other meals. However, some financial assistance is expected to be available, especially for applicants based at US institutions.

The school web page, including the registration form, is located at Registration closes on March 31.
