UK past

The most recent UK SKA Science Community meeting took place on Monday 2 July 2018 at the Royal Astronomical Society, London.

The meeting provided an opportunity for the UK community to keep up-to-date with SKA developments and plans for new UK and European data infrastructure, and to discuss science opportunities from new radio surveys and the challenges arising from big data sets in astronomy.

The meeting included an update from the SKAO on the current status of SKA and planning for SKA data challenges, followed by a series of invited and contributed presentations on science from SKA precursors, ideas for dealing with large data sets, and presentations on UKT0 and plans for a European SKA regional data centre. The meeting concluded with a discussion of UK priorities in this area.

Please contact Jonathan Pritchard (the Chair of the UKSKASC) with any questions regarding the above meeting.
