First Announcement

We are pleased to announce the Second Asian Radio Astronomy School to be held on August 18-22, 2008 at Academia Sinica, Institute of Astronomy and Astrophysics (ASIAA) in Taipei, Taiwan.

With the advance and growing number of both ground- and space- based interferometric array facilities at radio, millimeter, and submillimeter wavelengths, observational radio astronomy, particularly at high angular resolution, has become increasingly important. Sponsored by ASIAA, this school is intended for students and scientists with strong interests in carrying out research with radio interferometric facilities. Basic knowledge in radio astronomy is preferred but not required for the attendants. The program will include lectures on the fundamentals of radio interferometry and a number of selected facilities such as VERA, VSOP-2, SMA, and ALMA, as well as hands-on exercises with real observational data. All sessions will be conducted in English.

Due to the lecture hall and lodging capacity, the number of attendant is limited to 100 people. Should there be too many applicants, priority will be given to applicants from Taiwan, Japan, and the East Asian region.

ASIAA will provide shared accommodation for participants (except those from Taipei city/county) during the school period from Aug 17th to Aug 22th. Lunches and a banquet will also be arranged. Overseas participants are expected to meet their own travel and other expenses.
