Abstract

The Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array (ALMA) is the largest and most sensitive millimetre/submillimetre array on the planet, with the highest spatial resolution. Since it began operating, ALMA has routinely been at the forefront of science in this wavelength regime, delivering ground-breaking discoveries. The ALMA 2019 science conference was organised as one of a series of meetings held at regular intervals for the worldwide ALMA community, the previous one being held in Indian Wells, USA in 2016. At the start of Cycle 7 of observations, the ALMA 2019 conference provided an opportunity for the community to reflect on the multitude of scientific results from the facility, with special emphasis on the results from the first rounds of ALMA Large Programmes, the long baselines and high-frequency capabilities, the new solar and very long baseline interferometry (VLBI) modes, as well as the synergy between ALMA and other observatories.
