ALMA-SOL-IMG Workshop 2

Second International Workshop on Solar Imaging with ALMA - ALMA-SOL-IMG2.


We are pleased to announce the Second International Workshop on Solar Imaging with ALMA, to take place on November 3-5, 2021. Building on the first workshop, held in 2020, this workshop will continue to develop best practices in data calibration and will address several advanced topics, including the combination of single dish and interferometric data, problems raised by the use of a heterogeneous array, observations of the solar limb, and time domain challenges. The workshop will be fully virtual, comprised of pre-recorded scene-setting talks, posters, and daily online discussions.
While this workshop is primarily directed towards experienced users who have actively worked on processing and analyzing solar observations with ALMA, anyone who is interested in learning how to effectively process solar data is encouraged to participate. 


  1. Combination of INT and SD data (TPVIS/SDINT)
  2. Primary beam correction for heterogeneous array
  3. Limb observations
  4. Time domain - alignment - longer time series (observing mode development)

Important dates 

September 15 Submission of poster abstracts opens
October 15  Abstract and submission deadline
November 1 Videos of keynote talks will be made accessible
November 3-5 Daily online sessions

Workshop schedule

Given the large differences in time zones of the expected participants, we plan to limit the online discussions to two hours (13:00-15:00UT) during the workshop days. Every participant is encouraged to do the following before the schedule online sessions at a time of their own convenience:

  • Watch the pre-recorded keynote presentations for that day
  • Look at the poster presentations connected to the day's topics 

The aim is to use the online sessions for discussions based on the keynote presentations and related posters. The last workshop day will also address priorities for future observing and processing capabilities.
