Science with Parkes Workshop
ATNF Lecture Theatre, 5 November 2007
The Parkes telescope has been, and continues to be, a front rank scientific instrument. Its scientific output from large scale surveys of HI, pulsars, masers, continuum and polarization form a cornerstone of modern radio astronomy. The impact of the science from Parkes can be judged through, for example, the citation rate which is the highest from any radio telescope world wide.
As we move towards ASKAP, Phase I of the SKA and ultimately the full SKA, we need to determine the role that Parkes will play into the future.
This meeting will therefore focus on the science which can be done with the Parkes radio telescope over the next 5 - 10 years, both prior to the advent of ASKAP and during ASKAP operations.
|Date:||Monday 5 November 2007, 10:00 to 17:00|

RegistrationThis meeting is being held in conjunction with the biannual ATNF User's Committee meeting, which will take place on November 6 at the ATNF Marsfield site. All are welcome to attend the Workshop. There is no registration or fee for the meeting. The meeting will be held in the Lecture Theatre on the Marsfield site of the ATNF. Morning and afternoon teas will be provided for all participants. Lunch can be bought onsite at the canteen.
Also note that the Extragalatic/Intergalactic Magnetic Fields meeting will be held on Nov 7/8 at ATNF Marsfield.
SpeakersAll speakers should email their contributions to email@example.com before the meeting starts. This will allow people at the remote sites to access your talk.
Other DetailsWe intend to run tele/video conferencing equipment for this workshop. Please let Michael Dahlem know if you will be listening in remotely.
