Hi ASA friends,

Please see below for an advertisement for the second session of the ANITA
Green Computing school. This will feature a talk from Adam Stevens about
carbon emissions in astronomy, followed by a panel discussion on the same
topic. Please feel free to come along if you're interested!




I hope you're as excited as I am about our talk from Adam Stevens and the
subsequent panel discussion session tomorrow afternoon (3pm-4.30pm AEST).
To get you even more excited, here is a bit more information about our
wonderful panelists (see below).

Here's the Zoom link again:

Can't wait to see you all there tomorrow! And please do email me with any
questions you might want to put to the panel.

Best wishes,

Adam is a postdoctoral researcher at UWA, who works to understand the
formation and evolution of galaxies using semi-analytic models and
cosmological hydrodynamic simulations. He is also passionate about acting
on climate change, and is the lead author of the Nature Astronomy
perspective article “The Imperative to Reduce Carbon Emissions in
Astronomy” [https://protect-au.mimecast.com/s/yifKC3QNPBipo0zG8tDctmT?domain=nature.com].

also recently chaired The Future of Meetings symposium [https://protect-au.mimecast.com/s/YI9HC6XQ4Lfr78Y13hB63xr?domain=tfom.org],
which explored how our meetings, conferences and other academic
interactions can be more accessible, inclusive and sustainable.
