Pathways to SKA Science in Australasia

A timely conference building on the recent agreement between Australia and New Zealand, and first light on New Zealand’s Warkworth 12-metre antenna, is planned for February 2010. Pathways to SKA Science in Australasia aims to highlight recent SKA developments in Australia and New Zealand, and to review the main areas of SKA science.

ASKAP and SKA overviews
Engineering developments in Australia and New Zealand
Key SKA science
Related projects in Australasia
The conference program includes slots for contributed papers as well as a poster session. A visit to the Warkworth telescope, followed by wine tasting at a local vineyard, is also included. The conference dinner will be held at Auckland’s famous Sky Tower restaurant.

Dick Manchester, CSIRO (Chair, Science Organising Committee)
Sergei Gulyaev, Auckland University of Technology (Chair, Local Organising Committee)

This is a not an Auckland ICT activity however we do believe it is of interest to many in the New Zealand ICT industry. Sergei gave a presentation at our recent meeting at the Stardome of the SKA project, current developments and an overview of this immense global project happening (hopefully) on our door step.
