The 9th European Radio Interferometry School (ERIS 2022) will be hosted by JIVE and ASTRON in Dwingeloo (the Netherlands) on 19 - 23 September 2022. The school is sponsored by the H2020 OPTICON-RadioNet Pilot (ORP) Project. Registration for the School is currently open and the deadline for registration is 15 May 2022.

ERIS 2022 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:

  • Calibration and imaging of interferometry data (continuum, spectral line, and polarisation)
  • Observing techniques with various arrays (e.g. LOFAR, e-MERLIN, EVN/VLBI, ALMA & NOEMA);
  • How to plan and propose for observations.

The school will be hosted by JIVE & ASTRON in Dwingeloo, the Netherlands. The participants and lecturers will be accommodated in local hotels. The registration fee is 180 Euros, covering the accommodation (sharing double rooms) and half board plan for the 5 days of the school, from the arrival on Sunday 18 September 2022 to the departure on Friday 23 September 2022.

Please register via the ERIS 2022 School website. Note that due to logistical limitations, the School will be able to accommodate a maximum of 85 participants, so we encourage registration as soon as possible. The deadline for registration is 15 May 2022. Candidates will be informed about acceptance by yearly June. The registration fee payment deadline will be 1 August 2022.

The school is sponsored by the H2020 OPTICON-RadioNet Pilot (ORP) Project. For more information please visit the ERIS 2022 website.

Additional information

The European VLBI Network (EVN) is an interferometric array of radio telescopes spread throughout Europe, Asia, South Africa and the Americas that conducts unique, high-resolution, radio astronomical observations of cosmic radio sources. Established in 1980, the EVN has grown into the most sensitive VLBI array in the world, including over 20 individual telescopes, among them some of the world's largest and most sensitive radio telescopes. The EVN is composed of 13 Full Member Institutes and 5 Associated Member Institutes.

The Joint Institute for VLBI ERIC (JIVE) has as its primary mission to operate and develop the EVN data processor, a powerful supercomputer that combines the signals from radio telescopes located across the planet. Founded in 1993, JIVE is since 2015 a European Research Infrastructure Consortium (ERIC) with seven member countries: France, Italy, Latvia, the Netherlands, United Kingdom, Spain and Sweden; additional support is received from partner institutes in China, Germany and South Africa. JIVE is hosted at the offices of the Netherlands Institute for Radio Astronomy (ASTRON) in the Netherlands.
