The European Radio Interferometry School (ERIS) is a bi-annual graduate level school that forms a fundamental part of the training and development of young radio astronomers. This school is the seventh of a series of summer schools supported by RadioNet.
The school offers both lectures and practical tutorials that are given by invited specialists in interferometry who have expertise in using the main European radio astronomy facilities (e-MERLIN, EVN, IRAM, LOFAR, ALMA).
The previous schools have been extremely successful in delivering the training needed to prepare radio astronomy students to write their own proposals, reduce interferometry data and interpret their results.
ERIS is open to all who wish to gain a better insight to radio interferometry techniques and methods. It will include
- Calibration and imaging of continuum, spectral line, and polarization data
- Low frequency (LOFAR domain), cm-wave (e-MERLIN domain), decimetre-wave (HI/OH domain), high frequency (ALMA/IRAM domain), and VLBI interferometry
- Extracting the information from astronomical data and interpreting the results
- Choosing the most suitable array and observing plan for your project
