Science Highlight




Registration and abstract submission are open for the conference "ALMA at 10-years: Past, Present, and Future"!

24 April 2023

To commemorate its first decade of science operations, the ALMA partnership is organizing a conference in Puerto Varas, Chile on 4-8 December 2023 that will take a look back at the Observatory’s accomplishments, highlight its latest results, and look forward to future technical developments. The first decade of ALMA has led to many exciting discoveries and 3000+ publications. As ALMA starts its second decade of operations, it is implementing an ambitious development roadmap that will ultimately quadruple the system bandwidth and vastly improve ALMA's observing efficiency for continuum and spectral line science.

This conference will include invited and contributed talks, and poster presentations. Talks and posters are welcome in all fields of astronomy, from cosmology and galaxies in the distant Universe to nearby galaxies and the Galactic Center, interstellar medium, and star formation in our Galaxy, as well as astrochemistry, circumstellar disks, exoplanets, Solar System, stellar evolution, and the Sun.

A hybrid format will allow participants to choose to attend in-person or remotely on a virtual platform. We note that registration for in-person attendance will be limited to 180 participants and once the capacity of the conference venue is reached, any additional in-person registrants will be placed on a waiting list.

This announcement is to inform the community that abstract submission and registration are now open at https://www.eso.org/sci/meetings/2023/ALMA/registration/registration-open.html, with a deadline to submit an abstract for a contributed talk on May 31, 2023.

More information on the conference is available on the conference web page.
