Practical Assignments

For a smaller group of people there is the opportunity to continue to work on practical assignments to improve their calibrating skills. This will take place in Dwingeloo at ASTRON & JIVE during the two weeks after the workshop (from 8 till 21 March).

There is a choice of packages to use and for which professional assistance is around:

  • MeqTrees
  • AIPS ++
  • (classic) AIPS
  • Miriad
  • Newstar
Participants are encouraged to bring their own radio data problems to work on. Alternatively one can work on fresh LOFAR observations.

ASTRON and JIVE have a guesthouse on site where participants can stay for the two weeks.

Alternatively, it is possible to arrange a practical assignment later in 2008.
