Event description

Description

Astronomy Australia Ltd (AAL) and the National Committee for Astronomy (NCA) are hosting a one day Astronomy Data and Computing Workshop to be held in Melbourne on October 23rd. The purpose of the workshop is to identify the data and computing infrastructure requirements required to address the Astronomy Decadal plan priority that Australia attain "world-class high-performance computing (HPC) and software capability for large theoretical simulations, and resources to enable processing and delivery of large data sets from these facilities". It is intended that the discussion cover both large -scale datasets and computing in both the theoretical and observational domains.

The workshop program will be a mix of presentations and group discussions. Outputs of the workshop include:

  • Draft of a data and computing infrastructure white paper, as input into the Mid-term Review of the Decadal plan.
  • Input into AAL’s three-year data and computing investment plan.
  • Identification of synergies between Australian infrastructure investment in SKA, gravitational wave and other data centre investments.
  • Discussion of possible coordination within the Astronomical community of requirements from national providers such as NCI, Pawsey, etc.
