New and old generations of radio astronomers

RadioNet3 supports four outstanding events in the coming months. Three of the events are planned for September: the European Radio Interferometry School, the IRAM millimetre single dish summer School, and the Young European Radio Astronomers' Conference. Both schools are addressed to increase the expertise of young astronomers, the future users of the existing and coming on line radio astronomy facilities. The YERAC is meant as a platform for young radio astronomers to present their own research.

In November, the The Radio Universe @ Ger's (wave)-length conference is organized to celebrate the 65th birthday of Prof. Ger de Bruyn, who has been a leading figure in radio astronomy in the last few decades.

  • The European Radio Interferometry School (ERIS 2013), September 9-13, ASTRON, The Netherlands. This school is the fifth of a series of summer schools supported by RadioNet. ERIS will provide a week of lectures and tutorials on how to achieve scientific results from radio interferometry.
  • The IRAM millimetre single dish summer school (7th IRAM 30m Summer School), 13-20 September 2013 Pradollano, near Granada, Spain, will combine lectures on millimeter astronomy with hands-on experience with the IRAM 30m telescope.
  • The Young European Radio Astronomers' Conference (XXXIII YERAC), September 30 to October 3 2013, Bielefeld, Germany, addresses master and doctoral students as well as early stage postdocs and is meant as a platform for them to present their own research, gain experience in giving talks and getting feedback on their presentation technique.
  • The conference The Radio Universe @ Ger's (wave)-length (, November 4-7 2013, Groningen, the Netherlands, is organized to celebrate Prof. Ger de Bruyn who has been a leading figure in radio astronomy in the last few decades and has been instrumental in the development of LOFAR, especially the LOFAR-EoR key science project. This conference is also planned as a celebration of his scientific career and achievements.
