10th IRAM 30-meter School on Millimeter Astronomy (Virtual Edition)*

15-19, 22 and 23 November, 2021


Welcome to the 10th IRAM 30-meter School on Millimeter Astronomy web site!

Due to the special circumstances derived from the COVID-19 pandemic, the 10th edition will be held on-line, on 15-19, 22 and 23 November.

As in previous editions, the school will combine lectures on millimeter astronomy with observations using the 30-meter telescope. Lectures will be given by experienced scientists and 30-meter observers, covering a wide range of topics, including the study of the chemistry of interstellar clouds, low and high mass star formation, in the Milky Way, in nearby galaxies, and at high-redshifts. In addition, the school will include lectures on instrumentation, observing techniques, and data processing. This edition will highlight the synergies with the IRAM NOrthern Extended Millimetre Array (NOEMA).

The lectures will be complemented by practical work using the 30-meter telescope. As usual, students, lecturers and technical assistants will form small groups, to work on one topic, preparing a science case, conducting the observations with the 30-meter telescope, reducing the data, and presenting first results on the last day of the school. However, unlike previous schools, where trainers and students performed their observations at the telescope site, in this edition all observations will be conducted in remote mode.

The school is aimed at attracting new scientists to current and future single-dish millimeter and sub-millimeter facilities. The school is primarily meant for young researchers with little previous experience in millimeter astronomy. Due to the constraints imposed by the practices at the telescope (even in remote mode), the school attendance will be limited to about 60 students who will be selected on the basis of their interests, experience, and references. Other considerations will be taken into account. In particular, we will strive to achieve balance in gender and geographical origin for attendees and lecturers.

Being an online event, the Science Organising Committee (SOC) has decided that all applicants will beadmitted to attend the lectures. Applicants will receive soon an e-mail with instructions to register at the DISCORD platform that will be used for interchanging information,  raising questions, chatting, etc.

The classes will be given as Zoom Webinars.

For technical reasons, the tutorials and practical classes at the telescope will be limited to 60 participants in six working groups. The results of the selection process will be communicated on October, 26.
