SKA – Delivering the Science

SKA – Delivering the Science

Cambridge, 12-13 April 2016


***The registration is now closed***

Venue: Sackler Lecture Theatre at the Inst. of Astronomy, map






The primary goal of this meeting is to stimulate discussion between the UK science community and the experts involved in the technical work packages for the SKA, especially science data processing. The workshop is aimed at helping UK astronomers to understand the practicalities of their proposed science programmes on the SKA, and to help the technical experts to gain an appreciation of the aspirations and priorities of the science community. The SKA organisation is now making preparations for how Key Science Programmes will be formulated, and decisions on the scope of Regional Processing Centres, so this workshop is particularly timely for UK astronomers for whom the SKA will play a significant role in the coming decade.
