I-TRAIN


 I-TRAIN with the European ARC Network

The European ARC Network is initiating I-TRAIN, a regular series of Interactive Training in Reduction and Analysis of INterferometric data.
The sessions will cover a wide range of topics of interest to the ALMA user community with the aim to help users gain expertise in working
with interferometric data. 

The duration of each training session will be about one hour, including a live demo and interactive Q&A. 
 

Upcoming training sessions

Training session Description
I-TRAIN #1: imaging with the ALMA Pipeline
4 December 2020, 11:00 CET
[
Zoom link]

In this training session participants will learn how to run the ALMA Science Pipeline for
their own scientific purposes. They will be guided on how to tweak different parameters
of the pipeline tasks to produce cleaned data cubes from publicly available ALMA data.
This will allow users to obtain products that are tailored to the specific requirements
of their science projects. 

Some preparations are needed to follow this tutorial in full. Attendees are kindly requested
to follow these instructions before the session. 

The duration of this training session, hosted by the Nordic ARC node, will be about an
hour and will include a live demo and an interactive Q&A session. For questions do not
hesitate to contact the Nordic node at contact@nordic-alma.se.

I‑TRAIN #2: ALMA Science Archive update and ARI‑L
15 December 2020, 11:00 CET

In this training session on the use of ALMA data we present some recently
added functionality of the ALMA Science Archive like access to individual files,

the CARTA remote visualisation and the new ALMA VO services.
An overview over the European ALMA development project ARI-L will follow. ARI-L has
already delivered over 74000 science FITS files to the ALMA Science Archive completing
the existing ALMA products for Cycles 2-4.

I-TRAIN #3: UVMultiFit
15 January 2021, 11:00 CET
[
Zoom link]    

The tool UVMultiFit is a versatile library for fitting models directly to visibility data.
Visibility fitting can be a powerful method to analyze interferometric data and extract
source information without the need to process image deconvolution. During the
third session you will learn how to use this tool on real, publicly available ALMA data. 

Some preparations are needed to follow this tutorial in full. Attendees are kindly requested
to fulfil the Requirements in these instructions before the session. Participants that require
support to install UVMultiFit in their computers or would like to request remote computer
access to follow this tutorial, please register here .

The duration of this training session, hosted by the Nordic ARC node, will be about an
hour 
and will include a live demo and an interactive Q&A session. For questions do not
hesitate 
to contact the Nordic node at contact@nordic-alma.se.
