Dear colleagues:

The dates of the ANITA “summer” school on Green Computing have been set with the input from those who expressed interest following the ANITA workshop.  The school will take place over three Thursdays, June 3, 10, and 17.  On each of those days, participants will meet over zoom between 1 PM and 4:30 PM AEST (11 AM to 2:30 PM AWST).   

The first meeting, on June 3, will include an introduction to computing resources from ADACS coordinator Greg Poole and ASTAC chair Bernhard Mueller; a talk from Adam Stevens, lead author of Nature Astronomy article “The imperative to reduce carbon emissions in astronomy”; and a panel discussion between Adam, Vanessa Moss, Pascal Elahi and Natasha Hurley-Walker on the same topic.  [The panel will take question and suggestions live, but we would also like to line up some questions from the audience beforehand. Please email Isobel Romero-Shaw <isobel.romero-shaw at monash.edu> to suggest questions for the panel.]

On June 10 and June 17, Paul Hancock and Rebecca Lange from ADACS we will provide tutorials on high-performance computing, profiling, optimisation, and related topics.   

The registration for the school is now open.  Please register by filling in the following form:  
Even those who have previously expressed their interest should register, as we have a limited number of slots for the school.  

A meeting link and additional information will be emailed to registered participants closer to the start date.

Best wishes,
Ilya (ANITA chair) on behalf of the ANITA steering committee and the school organisers — Isobel, Greg, Paul, Rebecca and Darren
