Dear All,

Astronomy Australia Ltd (AAL) and the National Committee for Astronomy
(NCA) are hosting a one-day Astronomy Data and Computing Workshop to be
held in Melbourne on October 23rd. The purpose of the workshop is to
identify the data and computing infrastructure requirements required to
address the Astronomy Decadal plan priority that Australia attains
"world-class high-performance computing (HPC) and software capability for
large theoretical simulations, and resources to enable processing and
delivery of large datasets from these facilities".  It is intended that the
discussion cover both large-scale datasets and computing in both the
theoretical and observational domains.

The workshop program will be a mix of presentations and group discussions.
Outputs of the workshop include:

   1. Identification of synergies between Australian infrastructure
   investment in SKA, gravitational wave and other data centre investments.
   2. Input into AAL’s three-year data and computing investment plan.
   3. Draft of a data and computing infrastructure white paper, which may
   be useful input into the Mid-term Review of the Decadal Plan.
   4. Discussion of possible coordination within the Astronomical community
   of requirements from national providers such as NCI, Pawsey, etc.

All interested are welcome.  Please register your expression of interest
