Paris Observatory

Several departements and many groups in the Paris Observatory use the ALMA, Herschel and the IRAM facilities. The Paris Observatory has decided to support the scientific activities involving those instruments via a federative action.

Federative Action

The aim of this action is to support all researchers of the Paris Observatory to take best advantage of the ground-braking submm telescopes ALMA, NOEMA, and Herschel by providing local scientific, technical and computing expertise on how to obtain, reduce, and interpret these data, and financial support to enhance the OP participation in related outside events.

Call for support 2014

Application Deadline: March 31st, 2014

The new Federative Action of OBSPM on ALMA-NOEMA-Herschel is offering (limited) financial support for participation in conferences, schools, and workshops in 2014 directly linked...
