JIVE tutorial on the new capabilities for VLBI data processing in CASA – apply before September 15, 2018

At the end of the EVN symposium in Granada, JIVE will organize on October 11, 2018, JIVE a tutorial to demonstrate the new capabilities for VLBI data processing in CASA.

With the imminent release of CASA 5.3 the first experimental VLBI tools will be included in the package (see the latest CASA Newsletter for more details). With support from  IAA-CSIC, JIVE will introduce on this afternoon tutorial these new tools to the EVN community.

The first part of the tutorial consists of a lecture to demonstrate how to calibrate an EVN Network Monitoring Experiment in CASA, starting from the data stored in the EVN archive. The second part allows participants to try this for themselves, or attempt to calibrate a small dataset of their own. A few scans on a bright source are sufficient, given the available time.

All participants should bring their own laptop with a working CASA 5.3 installation. Note that at the time of writing, there is not yet a formal release, check the CASA Downloads page for the latest news. Experience with CASA is not necessary, for non-experienced CASA users it is recommended to work through one of the JVLA CASA tutorials prior to attending the workshop.

Interested participants are requested to sign up beforehand. Registration before 15 September is recommended to ensure a seat. After that date, details on the tutorial will be provided only to registered participants.

Date: October 11, 2018       Time: 15:30 – 18:30

Location: IAA-CSIC, Glorieta de la Astronmía s/n, C.P. 18008, Granada, Spain
