The First Pietro Baracchi Conference: Italo-Australian Radio Astronomy in the Era of the SKA

09:00 Tue 01 Nov to 17:00 Fri 04 Nov 2016

ARRC building, Perth WA


This conference is designed to bring together Italian and Australian researchers in radio astronomy, to discuss and explore existing and potential future areas of mutual interest. The meeting will be open to all areas of interest in radio astronomy (science, engineering, and computing), with an emphasis on those areas playing a key role in the era of the Square Kilometre Array (SKA) - a project in which both Italy and Australia are founding members. Named in honour of Pietro Baracchi, an Italian who played a central role in Australian astronomy in the late 1800s and early 1900s, this is planned to be the first in an ongoing series of meetings, alternating between Australia and Italy, covering a range of topics over time.
