INS1: Evolution with ALMA - first science results on the cool universe

Session Organisers:

Anita Richards and A Avison ( (University of Manchester, UK), M Zwaan (ESO ARC node), S Muehle (German ARC node)

ALMA is the most ambitious ground-based telescope in operation, sensitive to mm and sub-mm wavelengths which are absorbed by water vapour at sea level. When complete (in 2013) it will comprise 66 antennas; currently at least 16 are being used for science operations. The first Cycle 0 science results will be presented, such as on stellar and planetary evolution, star formation and distant galaxies associated with intense star formation. We invite successful Cycle 0 proposers or prospective Cycle 1 ALMA users to talk about their science. The ALMA session and also a lunchtime meeting will update the astronomical community on ALMA construction progress and the support available for prospective ALMA users including preparation for the Cycle 1 deadline.
