ASA/ANITA Astroinformatics Summer School (2013) – registration now open

Registration is now open for the 3 day ASA/ANITA Astroinformatics Summer School, 18th-20th Feb. The school will 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. There is a 110 AUD fee to attend the school for salaried researchers, which is waived for students.

The closing date for registration is 15th January 2013. For details and registration see the workshop website.
