AAL update
by Mita Brierley, James Murray and Rosalind Dubs (AAL)
Abstract: Astronomy Australia manages the Astronomy-NCRIS program on behalf of the Australian astronomy community. Our vision is for Australian astronomers to have access to the best astronomical research infrastructure, and our mission is to achieve this by engaging with astronomers in support of the national research infrastructure priorities of the Australian Astronomy Decadal Plan, and advising the Australian Government on the investments necessary to realise those priorities.

AAL Board member, Rosalind Dubs and Senior Program Managers Mita Brierley and James Murray will present an update on AAL activities over the last year, including:

  • the latest news on the AAO transition and the creation of a national optical instrumentation capability
  • infrastructure funding for SKA precursor telescopes and multi-messenger astronomy
  • AAL’s strategy for building Australia’s astronomy data and computing capability
This is an interactive session and AAL’s representatives are keen to answer your questions and hear your feedback.
