One of the 21st century’s biggest and most ambitious science ventures, the Square Kilometre Array (SKA) will deepen our understanding of the Universe and answer some fundamental questions about space, time, matter and energy. The primary aim of this Science for SKA Colloquium is to foster interaction and collaboration between New Zealand and international scientists – radio astronomers and physicists, engineers and mathematicians - building on the successful SKANZ 2010 and 2012 meetings, and thereby helping to realise the exciting potential of the SKA.

Computing for SKA Colloquium 2018: Towards Construction

Welcome to Computing for SKA (C4SKA) Colloquium
Thursday 15 – Friday 16 February 2018
Venue:  Sir Paul Reeves Building WG404, AUT City Campus

The Local Organising Committee warmly invites you to attend the annual Colloquium hosted by the New Zealand SKA Alliance in conjunction with AUT’s School for Engineering, Computer and Mathematical Sciences. It brings together industry and academics working on the design of computer systems for the SKA - the mega science project of the 21st century to build the world’s largest and most sensitive radio telescope. This is an opportunity to hear from the experts involved in the design phase and learn about the range of solutions developed to meet the unprecedented computing demands. The Colloquium will also include presentations and discussions around the project’s transition towards construction.
