ASKAP Community Workshop 2014

Marsfield Lecture Theatre


This 1-day workshop is aimed at the ASKAP Science Survey Teams and other potential ASKAP users.

The ASKAP team will provide a comprehensive update on BETA commissioning, data processing and the ASKAP data archive.

The afternoon sessions will provide astronomers with an opportunity to discuss the options for transitioning from ASKAP-12 (the early science array) to the full ASKAP, including the options for re-deployment of Mk I receivers from BETA.

Registration is free of charge.
