The ALMA Committees

Besides the management, which deals with all operational aspects of the construction on a day to day timescale, there are several external (independent) advisory bodies, dealing, for example, with scientific, technical, personnel, financial, management, and organisational issues. The various ALMA boards and committees deal in some cases with overall aspects of ALMA, in other cases also with regional aspects related to the specific circumstances of the respective Executives.

At present there are:

  • The ALMA Scientific Advisory Committee (ASAC)
  • The ALMA North American Scientific Advisory Committee (ANASAC)
  • The ALMA European Scientific Advisory Committee (ESAC)
  • The ALMA East Asian Scientific Advisory Committee (EASAC)
