The 7th annual ANITA workshop announced

The 7th Annual Theory Workshop of the Australian National Institute for Theoretical Astrophysics (ANITA), will be held on the 21st and 22nd of February 2013 at the School of Mathematics and Physics, University of Queensland, Brisbane. Website and registration will be available soon. Please save the date in your calendars!


ASA/ANITA Astroinformatics summer school

The ANITA meeting will be preceded by a 3 day astroinformatics summer school, from the 18th-20th Feb. (This is the inverse of the usual arrangement, where the school had previously followed the Workshop). The school with cover techniques and resources for use in astrophysics. Topics covered will be similar to the last school, which included:

  • Unix and unix-like operating systems
  • Python
  • Virtual observatory tools
  • Databases and SQL
  • TOPCAT and PyRAF
  • MPI Programming and HPC

The summer school is open to all advanced undergraduate, honours and PhD students as well as active Astronomy and Astrophysics researchers within Australia and New Zealand. However, numbers are limited and so when allocating spaces priority will be given to students. Registration and website will be available soon.

Looking foward to seeing you there.
