3rd CASA VLBI Workshop announced

Published on 15 December 2022


The 2023 CASA VLBI Workshop organised by JIVE will be held on 5-9 June 2023 as an hybrid event in Dwingeloo (the Netherlands) and online. Registration is now open and the deadline for abstract submission is 24 March 2023.
The aim of the 3rd edition of the CASA VLBI Workshop is to train participants on data processing and imaging of VLBI observations with the CASA package. Participants are expected to have a basic understanding of radio interferometry, but do not need to be experts.
The programme will consist of lectures and hands-on work. Though the focus will be on continuum astronomical experiments, other applications of VLBI will be discussed. The lecture topics include basic VLBI calibration, imaging and self-calibration, as well as more advanced topics like polarisation calibration, spectral line and wide-field experiments. For the practical work, the organisers expect the participants to bring their own laptop with a working version of CASA 6 and, optionally, their own data. Support for EVN, e-MERLIN and LOFAR data will be available on site, but participants are welcome to bring any VLBI dataset of their choice.
The 2023 workshop edition will be in hybrid format. All lectures will be live-streamed and recorded. A messaging service will be available for all participants for discussions and questions. However, the hands-on data processing will only be done in-person.
Registration is mandatory for both in-person and online participants. Registration is open now and the deadline is 24 March 2023. Please note that there is a limit of 50 participants for in-person participation.

This event has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 101004719.
