ERIS 2022

ERIS 2022 is a week-long training in techniques of radio interferometry via lectures and tutorials. This school is the ninth of a series of summer schools sponsored by RadioNet and is hosted by JIVE - Joint Institute for VLBI ERIC & ASTRON – Netherlands Institute for Radio Astronomy.

The topics covered by the lectures/tutorials will include:

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

The number of participants is limited to 85. We strongly encourage the potential candidates to proceed with the online registration as soon as possible. If oversubscribed, we will select the participants based on their career level, location and gender.

Please be aware that we will enforce the officially mandated Covid-19 regulations at the conference venue. As these rules are subject to change, we will inform you about the details a little closer to the conference date.

We are moving our Dwingeloo Test Station for LOFAR2.0 for the next series of tests, as part of a big #LOFAR upgrade, which will enable it to collect even more data and increase its accuracy. @RTVDrenthe visited us to take a look themselves.

2 days ago, the Sun emitted a strong solar flare, which might reach Earth today. Last August, @mabrentjens, radio astronomer at ASTRON, explained what effects these solar flares can have on our technologies.

The upgrade of our #LOFAR telescope is featured in @SKAO's Contact magazine! We are currently working on a major upgrade towards LOFAR2.0, which will give us more data, more accuracy, and simultaneous usage of our LBA and HBA antennas.

Over 70 students from all over the world participated in the 9th European Radio Interferometry School (#ERIS2022) - hosted by @jivevlbi and ASTRON & funded by the #H2020 @ORP_Astro - in Dwingeloo (the Netherlands) on 19-23 September 2022 @RadioNet_EU
