Sky Mining 2017 is a public hackathon taking data science to the skies.

Over 48 hours this event will bring together scientists, coders, technologists and enthusiasts from academia and industry to work on challenges Australian-based astronomers face.

The hackathon challenges can be accessed here, also visit the event page for more information.

Remote participation is a possibility, please contact us to discuss options.

 

This event is run by the Astronomy Data and Computing Services (ADACS) initiative. ADACS is delivered jointly by Swinburne University of Technology, Curtin University, and Pawsey Supercomputing Centre. This Project is an initiative of the Australian Government being conducted as part of the National Collaborative Research Infrastructure Strategy and administered by  Astronomy Australia Ltd (AAL).

ADACS - Introduction to computing and data science for astronomers

In the era of big telescopes and big data, data analysis practices need to scale to the volume of data processing and analysis needed for researchers to compete in a world-class arena.

This 3-day workshop is aimed at postgraduate students and ECRs who might not have had formal computational training and would like to get up to speed. Practical examples in the workshop are taken from observational astronomy, however, participation is open to all Australian-based astronomers.

Contact: Please email rebecca.lange@curtin.edu.au or visit the ADACS event page for more information.

This workshop is offered by the Astronomy Data and Computing Services (ADACS) initiative. ADACS is funded under the Astronomy National Collaborative Research Infrastructure Strategy (NCRIS) Program via Astronomy Australia Ltd (AAL).
