Sean Dougherty, diretor do Observatório ALMA, encontra-se de visita ao Centro Português de Competências para o ALMA (PACE) e realizará um seminário extraordinário em Ciências ULisboa, inserido no ciclo de seminários do Departamento de Física.

O PACE é uma estrutura do Instituto de Astrofísica e Ciências do Espaço, unidade de investigação da Faculdade de Ciências, que presta apoio ao ALMA e aos seus utilizadores em Portugal, integrando o ALMA Regional Centre Europeu que é coordenado pelo Observatório Europeu do Sul.


The Atacama Large Millimeter Array (ALMA) located at 5000m altitude in northern Chile is an extraordinary achievement of innovation and construction. This talk will introduce briefly the ALMA telescope system and the remote, high-altitude site, provide a report on the current status of the telescope, and describe some of the ground-breaking results that have been produced over the first five years of operation. Looking to the future of the telescope, the development plans for the next decade set out in the Development Roadmap will also be described.

Bio: Sean Dougherty is currently the Director of the ALMA Observatory, the world’s foremost millimeter/submillimeter interferometer array located at 5000m altitude in the Atacama desert in northern Chile. Previously he was Director at the Dominion Radio Astrophysical Observatory, Canada's national radio astronomy facility and part of the National Research Council's Herzberg Institute for Astrophysics. There he managed NRC’s work on the design of the SKA-mid correlator, and managed the production, installation and commissioning of the WIDAR correlator for the Jansky VLA in New Mexico, USA. He has served on a science and engineering advisory committees for a number of projects including the SKA and the ngVLA. He is currently the chair of the ASTRON Science Advisory Committee and a member of both the Smithsonian Millimeter Array Advisory Committee and the MPIfR advisory committee. His research interests are related to the circumstellar environments of massive stars, using observations from gamma-ray energies to radio wavelengths, but he is a specialist in radio interferometry.

Overview: Currently, climate changes or alterations are known to be reflected on the stable isotope ratios of Hydrogen, Nitrogen, Carbon, Oxygen and Sulphur present in atmospheric gas forms, fresh or ocean water, as well as in plants and animals and organi

Objectives: Evolutionary theory provides a framework for understanding all living systems.

Objectives: To introduce participants to the details of communicating science to non-specialized audiences, including, but not exclusive to, public and private stakeholders, students and teachers, and media professionals.

Objectives: Natural history museums are privileged spaces for seminal research on different subjects of biological sciences such as biodiversity, evolution, ecology, biogeography and taxonomy.

Objectives: Provide students with basic workflows, platforms and tools to increase reproducibility at all scientific levels.

Objectives: Under the general framework of Global Change Ecology, the goal of this course is to provide the participants with the most recent and practical knowledge on the use of Functional Diversity.

Objectives: The objective of this course is to introduce participants to the details of communication and writing scientific publications. The main emphasis is on the most common form, the “primary scientific paper”, but other forms will be covered.

Objectives: Lack of fertile land to feed the exponentially growing population, insufficient water availability and quality, changes in the flow of nutrients through the bio-geo-cycles (especially N and P) and climate and land use changes are impacting ecosystem

Objectives: Symbiosis is a key strategy for life on Earth.

Objectives: The goal of this course is to provide to the participants with current and practical knowledge on urban ecology, including ecological and social aspects. It aims at providing an integrated approach on urban socio-ecological systems.

Objectives: Citizen science can be part of the larger process of engaging people in new forms of interaction in scientific research, challenging scientists and citizens whilst enlarging scientific knowledge and providing learning opportunities for all part

New date: 30 August - 03 September 2021.

This conference is the 22nd in the series of triennial conferences which bring together the Particle and Nuclear Physics communities.
