Director of the High Performance Computing Research Laboratory at AUT University, Auckland, New Zealand
“Computing challenges of next decade’s largest mega-science project: the Square Kilometre Array (SKA)”
Dr. Andrew Ensor
The Square Kilometre Array is the largest mega-Science project of the next decade and presents some unprecedented computing challenges. As New Zealand’s first venture in a mega-Project with lead roles, it also represents numerous firsts for the country. This talk will outline the project, New Zealand’s key involvements in its computing design over the past five years, and updates on its progress as the construction phase draws closer.
