An Interferometry School organized by
the German Long Wavelength Consortium (GLOW)
the Bielefeld University Astroparticle Physics and Cosmology Group

General information

The school will take place at Bielefeld University, Faculty of Physics, rooms D01-286 and D01-249. 

The number of participants will be limited to 28. The school fee will be 80 Euros.
Payment: cash only upon arrival.

The school will begin on Monday morning at 09:00h and finish on Friday at lunchtime.
The goal of the 2. GLOW Interferometry School is to become familiar with CASA, the Common Astronomy Software Applications package (, besides a basic introduction to the principles of radio interferometry.

LOFAR (Low Frequency Array) is a new radio telescope under construction by ASTRON in the Netherlands operating between 30 and 240 MHz. In this largely unexplored frequency range, LOFAR will be the dominant telescope over the next decade, observing the low frequency sky with unprecedented resolution and sensitivity. LOFAR is rapidly becoming a European effort, with France, Germany, Poland, Sweden and the United Kingdom actively pursuing a participation in the LOFAR European network. Lofar commissioning observations are routinely carried out, and the first all-sky survey is about to begin in winter 2011.
