In the past few cycles of ALMA scientific operations, we see great success from the EA community in producing remarkable results. We are also excited by the expansion of the ALMA community into Korea. To maintain the momentum and to promote regional collaboration, we hold regular science workshops in the three EA-ALMA countries.
We are pleased to announce the 2016 East-Asian ALMA Science Workshop, to be held by National Tsing Hua University in Hsinchu, Taiwan, on March 10-12, 2017. Like the previous EA-ALMA Science Workshops, we invite ALMA users to present their recent results. Furthermore, we would like to enhance the workshop functions on promoting discussion and regional collaborations, by adjusting the workshop format. We will split part of the workshop into two parallel sessions on Galactic and extragalactic studies. We will have special sessions for prospective projects to call for collaborators, for archival science, and science that require multi-wavelength observations. The workshop will be timely to develop proposal ideas and form collaborations for the upcoming Cycle-5 deadline for PI programs. On the other hand, we encourage teams that plan to submit large proposals to hold meetings in advance, and present their ideas in the EA ALMA Science Workshop.
More specifically, we warmly welcome the following kinds of presentations:
- new ALMA science results, based on either PI data or archive data.
- future/ongoing science studies that may benefit from ALMA's new capabilities (VLBI, polarization, solar)
- future/ongoing scicece studies that require synergies with other major observatories
- cycle-5 proposal ideas that welcome collaborations
- proposal ideas from non-radio-experts seeking for collaborations and/or feedback
- Min Yun (UMass)
- Jin Koda (Stony Brook)
- Stéphane Guilloteau (LAB/CNRS)
- Woojin Kwon (KASI)
