The Herschel Satellite and the Acacama Large Millimeter Array (ALMA) are two very large sub-millimeter and Far Infra Red (FIR) astronomy projects that will come into operation in this decade. This report contains descriptions of the ALMA instrument only, since other papers in this volume contain discussions of the Herschel instrument. The emphasis here is on synergies and complementarities between ALMA and Herschel. A collection of projects designed to test the capabilites of ALMA is contained in the Design Reference Science Plan, DSRP, at http://www.str.leidenuniv.nl/alma.
