The IRAM ARC node
IRAM is a node of the European ALMA Regional Center (ARC). Based on the existing support activities for the Plateau de Bure interferometer and the involvement of the institute in the ALMA construction, IRAM is developping a support center dedicated to the ALMA interferometer. Our main tasks are:
The ARC node is a new service provided by IRAM to its community. It is done on behalf of the IRAM Council and the IRAM funding agencies: Max-Planck-Geselschaft (MPG, Germany), Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique (CNRS, France), Instituto Geográfico Nacional (IGN, Spain).
Just like the IRAM telescopes are open to the whole astronomical community, the ARC services will be open to all interested scientists, especially in Germany, France, and Spain. Financial support for astronomers travelling to Grenoble to reduce their data will be available, following the same rules as those currently used for the Plateau de Bure interferometer.
