General information

Third LOFAR Data Processing School

17 – 21 November 2014, Dwingeloo, The Netherlands 

Hosted by ASTRON 

The aim of this School is to introduce the LOFAR system to users and new members of the collaboration who will analyse Cycle data. Students, postdocs, and staff are all encouraged to attend. The school will cover the many aspects of the LOFAR system from the capabilities of the basic station hardware to the software pipelines and science products they produce.
Members of the LOFAR project will present lectures and tutorials. Hands-on sessions will also be provided to give attendees an opportunity to gain experience with real LOFAR data. 

Presentations will be given at a level appropriate for someone new to LOFAR. Familiarity with the concepts of radio interferometry and standard data processing software such as CASA, AIPS, or Myriad will be useful, but not required. Minimum requirements should include some familiarity with scripting languages and in particular Python.
