For several months, a completely new IRAM web site has been under development. The idea is to combine an up-to-date and homogeneous web design with general and in-depth information on the scientific and technological work at IRAM. Karin ZACHER has coordinated the effort between the web designers of Rebus (Paris), and the various working groups at IRAM.
The new site does not attempt to mirror the individual Spanish and French IRAM observatory pages; this feature made sense when the old website came online in December 2002 (http://www.iram.fr and http://www.iram.es), but the reliability and speed of internet connections has much improved since then, so that direct links are now more practical.
An effort has been made to offer compatibility with a maximum of different web navigators, although the support of outdated navigator versions is by necessity limited.
In July 2009, the new IRAM web pages went online under the URL http://www.iram-institute.org. Users accessing the old http://www.iram.fr home page have been redirected since then. The underlying page structure is still available, but remains (with only a few exceptions) in a static state. Please refer to the new web pages for up-to-date information.
