The Science Working Group is a scientific advisory group that provides input to the Office of the Square Kilometre Array Organization (SKAO) on issues relating to the design, construction, and future operations of the SKA that are likely to affect the Observatory’s scientific capability, productivity and user relations.
The Science Working Groups are NOT future guaranteed time teams and are NOT closed shops. They’re there to facilitate the involvement of the community and to help prioritise the science drivers of the facility. If you want to get actively involved in SKA science preparations, the way to do this is to participate in a science working group. To do this, drop a line to one or more of the following contacts:
Astrobiology / Cradle of Life: Johnstone (Canada) Jimenez-Serra (UK/Spain)
Cosmic Magnetism: Heald (Australia), Mao (Germany)
Cosmology: Battye (UK), Wolz (Australia)
Epoch of Reionisation / Cosmic Dawn: Bernardi (Italy & South Africa), Mellema (Sweden)
