Lunch, DSOC tours and workshop photograph

We will be providing lunch on the days of the tutorials. The lunches will take place on the lawn near the DSOC. We cannot handle the whole 150 at once so we will eat in 2 shifts. Each group will be told when to come over to eat at either 12:00 or 1:00.

On June 1 during lunch we will be taking the workshop photo. This will take place at 1:00.
On June 5 during lunch there will be a tour of the DSOC at 12:00 and 1:00.

Observation Prep Tutorials

There will be an VLA Observation Prep Tutorial using the OPT/RCT on May 31 and an ALMA Observation Prep Tutorial on June 4, using the OT and sim_observe and sim_analyse in CASA.

As with the Data Reduction Tutorials we will be using the auditorium and NMT classrooms.
