News

July 22, 2019: Second Announcement

Applications for the 2020 Submillimeter Array Interferometry School are now being accepted, details of which can be found here.

The school will be held from 12-17 January 2020 at the facilities of the Smithsonian Astrophysical Observatory located in Hilo, following the Winter AAS Meeting in Honolulu. The workshop will provide a series of lectures focusing on fundamentals of radio interferometry, with a special emphasis on the Submillimeter Array (SMA) interferometer and its new capabilities. The school will also extensively utilize the SMA, located on Maunakea, providing hands-on experience of actively performing observations and data reduction for projects proposed by school participants.

Registration will close on September 8, 2019. Admitted and waitlisted students will be notified by October 1, 2019.



June 3, 2019: First Announcement

The Center for Astrophysics, in conjunction with the Academia Sinica Institute of Astronomy and Astrophysics and the University of Hawaii, is organizing the first Submillimeter Array Interferometry School.

The school will be held from 12-17 January 2020 at the facilities of the Smithsonian Astrophysical Observatory located in Hilo, conveniently following the Winter AAS Meeting in Honolulu. The main goals of the school are to provide graduate students, post-docs and scientists outside the field with a broad knowledge of interferometry and data reduction techniques at (sub)millimeter wavelengths.

The workshop will provide a series of lectures focusing on fundamentals of radio interferometry, with a special emphasis on the Submillimeter Array (SMA) interferometer and its new capabilities. The school will also extensively utilize the SMA, located on Maunakea, providing hands-on experience of actively performing observations and data reduction for projects proposed by school participants.

The school registration form will be available soon!
