After the success of our first data school last year, we will be holding our second e-MERLIN Data School at the University of Manchester, UK, from 13-15 May 2024

The purpose of this school is to show participants how to reduce e-MERLIN data using the e-MERLIN CASA Pipeline. The school is designed for those with some radio astronomy knowledge. Priority will be given to PhD students and early career researchers. The three-day school will include calibration, imaging and self-calibration tutorials, with an opportunity to bring your own data (BYOD) to get expert help with your own e-MERLIN projects. We expect to be able to have space for up to 10 participants.

Date and Venue

The school will run from Monday 13 May at 9am until Wednesday 15 May at 5pm at the Alan Turing Building at the University of Manchester.

Fees, Funding, Visas and Travel Support

We expect to waive registration fees and provide lunches, teas and coffees. We also have a small amount of funding to support accommodation for some participants, but if this is required then justification is needed in the registration form. To facilitate organising visas, please register and request a visa letter as soon as possible.
