The purpose of the school is to attract new users to current and future mm-telescopes. This first school organized by IRAM in Spain will concentrate on single dish mm-astronomy.
There will be lectures on mm-techniques and their application to different areas of research, scientific highlight talks, observations with the IRAM 30-m telescope and a lab course on ``Data analysis and interpretation''.
|Topics:||1.||mm-astronomical observing techniques|
|2.||Inter- and circumstellar chemistry|
|3.||Physical conditions of the interstellar medium|
|4.||Extragalactic astronomy and cosmology|
|Lecturers:||F. Bertoldi (MPIfR), J. Cernicharo (CSIC), R. Mauersberger (IRAM),|
|K. Menten (MPIfR) and others, plus five teaching assistants.|
|LOC:||F. Damour, A. Duflos, T. Gallego, U. Lisenfeld, J. Lobato, R. Mauersberger|
Applications will be accepted from young scientists with little previous experience in mm-astronomy. The course is limited to 30 students, who will be selected on the basis of their CV and references. Financial support for travel and lodging for young researchers might become available.
