Dear All,

AAL, together with NCA, is hosting a one-day Astronomy Data and Computing
Workshop in Sydney.
*When:* Tuesday, 17th September 2019
*Where:* Room 1&2, AAO-MQ (105 Delhi Rd, North Ryde NSW 2119)
*Registration URL:* https://protect-au.mimecast.com/s/hqBACL7rK8tgkYE8sBKAQw?domain=aal-nca-workshop.eventbrite.com.au

The purpose of the workshop is to identify the data and computing
infrastructure requirements required to address the needs of the Australian
astronomy community for the next five years. The workshop will inform the
ongoing Mid-term Review of the Astronomy Decadal plan. For reference, one
of the 2016-25 Decadal plan priorities is “World-class high-performance
computing (HPC) and software capability for large theoretical simulations,
and resources to enable processing and delivery of large data sets 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. Draft of data and computing infrastructure white paper, as input into
   the Mid-term Review.
   2. Discussion of the feasibility of federating the Australian SKA
   Regional Centre (AusSRC), the Gravitational Wave Data Centre (GWDC) and the
   Optical Data Centre (ODC) to a single multi-wavelength Australian Astronomy
   Data Centre (AADC).
   3. Identification of synergies between different streams of investment
   in HPC.

Many thanks,

Robert on behalf of AAL-NCA Data and Computing Workshop Organizing Committee
