European Radio Interferometry School


16 – 20 October 2017, Dwingeloo, The Netherlands


Hosted by ASTRON – Netherlands Institute for Radio Astronomy
JIVE - Joint Institute for VLBI ERIC


This school is the seventh of a series of summer schools supported by RadioNet. ERIS will provide a week of lectures and tutorials on how to achieve scientific results from radio interferometry.

The topics covered by the lectures/tutorials will include:

  1. Calibration and imaging of continuum, spectral line, and polarization data
  2. Low frequency (LOFAR domain), cm-wave (e-MERLIN domain), decimetre-wave (HI/OH domain), high frequency (ALMA/IRAM domain), and VLBI interferometry
  3. Extracting the information from astronomical data and interpreting the results
  4. Choosing the most suitable array and observing plan for your project.

Previous ERIS schools:

Due to logistical limitations we will be able to accommodate up to 80 participants. We encourage potential participants to proceed with the online registration as soon as possible. Later registrants will be put on a waiting list.
