Computing for SKA Colloquium 2015

Welcome to Computing for SKA (C4SKA) Colloquium 

12 – 13 February 2015

AUT City Campus

The Organising Committee warmly invites you to this special event - the annual Colloquium hosted by the New Zealand SKA Alliance in conjunction with the Institute for Radio Astronomy and Space Research and the School for Computer and Mathematical Sciences at AUT.

This Colloquium brings together industry and academics working on the design of computer systems for the Square Kilometre Array (SKA) - the mega science project of the 21st century to build the largest and most sensitive radio telescope in the world.  This is an opportunity to meet some of the brightest computing talents and contributors in the world and learn the range of solutions to meet the unprecedented computing demands from SKA and similar industries over the next 10 years.
