Dear colleagues,

we are happy to announce that registration is now open for the CAASTRO workshop

   "SkyMapper: everything you need to know to use the Terabytes"

   RSAA Mt Stromlo 7 April 2014 11am to 9 April 1pm

The commissioning of the SkyMapper telescope is finished and regular survey observations will start soon. In light of real performance figures and the survey landscape of 2014 the SkyMapper survey strategy is updated to deliver the primary science value more quickly. This is the time to look at early data and discuss methods of data analysis and ways of sharing the data. The workshop is open to the Australian astronomy community, but capped at 50 participants. It aims to bring together makers and users of the survey, so that it may be used as effectively as possible. The format will include presentations, moderated discussions and break-out mini-workshops. We want to present our core services and discuss the possibility of value-added data products developed jointly with the community. We will also report on science applications with commissioning data and help the community to evaluate science opportunities with the survey. Contributions are welcome, but not required for attendance.

Please see the website http://www.caastro.org/event/2014-skymapper for registration.

With best wishes,

B. Schmidt, D. Sturgess, K. Williams & Ch. Wolf
