Community Meeting of the UK SKA Science Community, Monday 2 July 2018
Royal Astronomical Society, London

Registration is now open for the UK SKA Science Community meeting which will be held at the Royal Astronomical Society, London on Monday 2 July 2018, running from 10am to 5pm. Attendance at the meeting is free, but participants must register by Thursday 28 June.

Please register online at UKSKASC Town Meeting RAS 2 July 2018 where abstracts for presentations may also be submitted until Tuesday 12 June.

This meeting will provide 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 will begin with an update from SKAO on the current status of SKA and planning for SKA data challenges. There will then be 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. Finally, the meeting will conclude with a discussion of UK priorities in this area.

Please contact Jonathan Pritchard with any questions.
