German ALMA Community Days 2013: Registration open

The German ALMA Community Days 2013 will be held on 05-06 November at
the Argelander-Institut für Astronomie of the University of Bonn. The
aim of the meeting is the review of ALMA Early Science and the
preparation of the German ALMA Community for the upcoming proposal
deadline. Various talks will present new tools and new capabilities of
ALMA in Cycle 2, the basics of proposal preparation/review and the
support available to (prospective) ALMA users. During workshops,
participants can prepare their own ALMA proposals under the
supervision of experts. The meeting will also feature several ALMA
science talks and offer an opportunity to network with other users and
ALMA support staff.

During the first day, ALMA Early Science results as well as practical
information on ALMA, user support and ALMA-related projects will be
presented and discussed. The second day will be dedicated to hands-on
work in various workshops.

If you would like to attend the Community Days, please register at


before October 31. Workshop places are limited and will be assigned on
a "first come, first served" basis! There is no hard limit to the
attendance of the presentations on the first day. However, we would
appreciate it if you register even if you plan to attend only on the
first day, so that we can plan coffee, tea and lunch accordingly.
