On December 16th, the official switch took place from the old IRAM web site on http://iram.fr to the new site on http://www.iram.fr. The advantage of the new pages is the daily mirroring between IRAM Granada and IRAM Grenoble, which allows users to switch between http://www.iram.es and http://www.iram.fr according to their location and/or web traffic.
The new web site has already out-grown the old one. Some important information pages will be maintained for a transitional period on both sites, but bookmarked pages should soon be updated.
As always, problems may arise from the use of different web browsers (versions and operating systems) which may not be noticed immediately during the development. If you encounter a problem, don't hesitate to send a mail to the webmaster (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Many thanks to the past and present members of the IRAM web group who have developed the pages: Virginie Guérard, Catherine Berjaud, Fabienne Rossini, Rosa Montalban, Rainer Mauersberger, Roberto Neri, Marc Torres, and many others. Of course, such a site could not function without the support of the system managers Alain Perrigouard (Grenoble) and Walter Brunswig (Granada).
More pages are planned: general information in several languages, a dedicated VLBI section, and of course press releases of the latest observing results whenever the PIs agree.
