The First Pietro Baracchi Conference: Italo-Australian Radio Astronomy in the Era of the SKA
November 1 - 4, 2016
Perth, Western Australia
The organising committees of "The First Pietro Baracchi Conference: Italo-Australian Radio Astronomy in the Era of the SKA" are pleased to announce that registration is now open at the meeting website:
Early registration and abstract submission close on 1 August 2016. Please note that because we may need to limit the number of participants, we encourage you to register early.
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 these 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.
The conference will be held at the modern ARRC building in Technology Park, Perth, and will feature both invited and contributed presentations, along with plenty of time for discussion and informal exchanges, an attractive social program, and visits to local facilities of relevance (including the Pawsey Centre, CSIRO, and ICRAR).
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.
At the meeting website, you can register for the conference, find information about the venue location and explore accommodation options in the region.
There is no registration fee for the meeting, thanks to generous sponsorship provided by the Embassy of Italy in Australia, CSIRO, ICRAR, Curtin University, and INAF.
