Dear ASA Members,

At the 2022 ASA annual science meeting, we had a break-out discussion 
about the need for machine learning in astronomy including both: what 
people are currently doing currently and what people want to do. As a 
result of this discussion we identified that many people were interested 
in using ML in their research but were unsure about where to start. One 
solution that was proposed is that some training be developed to meet 
the needs of the community at large.

As members of the Australian astronomy community, we would like to 
survey your training needs to determine how many people are interested 
in receiving training and a broad picture of the type of training that 
is needed. The survey is short, just 8 multiple choice/checkbox-type 
questions and 1 longer form option and should only take you 5 mins to 

Please complete this form by *5pm Friday September 23rd*.


Regards, Sarah
