Between August 20-23 will be held the Pucón Symposium 2013: Advanced Tools Applied to Frontier Astronomy, BioMedicine and Massive Data-driven Sciences at the Villarrica Park Lake Hotel, near Pucón (Región de la Araucanía), Chile.
With the operation of the ALMA radio-interferometric observatory, a large amount of preprocessing will be required. The ALMA instrument observatory has already begun operations with reduced capabilities, and will reach completion by 2013, recording several GB per day in Fourier space radio signals over 60 antennas, in a 16 km wide surface.
