Workshop on
Science with the uGMRT

National Centre for Radio Astrophysics, Pune

June 15-17, 2016

The Workshop

The Giant Metrewave Radio telescope (GMRT) is currently undergoing a major upgrade, the "uGMRT" project, that will significantly improve its scientific capabilities and allow the GMRT to retain its status as the most sensitive radio interferometer in the world at low frequencies, ≲ 1 GHz. The main features of the upgrade are:

The upgrades to the GMRT will open up a wide range of interesting science areas for its user community. The main aim of this workshop is to increase the awareness of the GMRT user community about the capabilities of the uGMRT and the new exciting science that can be done with it, as well as to discuss connections between the uGMRT and other telescopes that are either coming online now or will be built over the next decade.

Because of logistical reasons the number of outstation participants will be limited to 45. Limited travel support may be available for students and postdoctoral fellows.

Anyone willing to attend the workshop should send the filled up application form by email to workshop-ugmrt@ncra.tifr.res.in The last date of receiving applications is April 30, 2016. Selected participants will be informed by May 15, 2016.
