2019-02 New Zealand SKA Forum Print
November 2018
This is a replicate of  https://irasr.aut.ac.nz/news-And-events2/news-And-events/nz-ska-forum-2019 with minor re-formatting.

We look forward to welcoming you to Auckland University of Technology (AUT) for the New Zealand SKA Forum 2019.

This forum focuses on the science and computing challenges presented by the Square Kilometre Array (SKA), one of the 21st century’s biggest and most ambitious projects.  AUT has a long tradition of hosting SKA related events going back to 2005.  This time it will be the 6th SKA Forum conducted in New Zealand.

The NZ SKA Forum 2019 will unite two colloquia on Science and Computing for SKA.  Following the successful format established in February 2018, the Science for SKA Colloquium will be hosted before the Computing for SKA Colloquium.

Science for SKA Colloquium (S4SKA) 2019
Dates: Tuesday 12 - Wednesday 13 February 2019
Venue: Sir Paul Reeves Building WG404, AUT City Campus
The Science Organising Committee warmly invites you to attend the annual Colloquium hosted by the Institute for Radio Astronomy and Space Research, SKA NZ Alliance and AUT’s School for Engineering, Computer and Mathematical Sciences. The primary aim of the S4SKA Colloquium is to foster interaction and collaboration between New Zealand and international scientists – radio astronomers and astrophysicists, physicists and engineers, mathematicians and statisticians - building on previous NZ SKA meetings, and thereby helping to realise the exciting potential of the SKA.

Computing for SKA Colloquium (C4SKA) 2019
Dates: Thursday 14 – Friday 15 February 2019
Venue: Sir Paul Reeves Building WG404, AUT City Campus
The Local Organising Committee warmly invites you to attend the annual Colloquium hosted by the SKA NZ Alliance in conjunction with AUT’s School for Engineering, Computer and Mathematical Sciences and Institute for Radio Astronomy and Space Research.  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, including design updates, prototyping and the Bridging phase.
