Registration open for SKA Introductory Radio Astronomy School 2014

ACRU will be hosting an introductory radio astronomy school, on behalf of Square Kilometre Array South Africa, from 9-14 December 2014. The school is primarily aimed at final year undergraduates, Hons, and MSc students.

Several leading radio astronomers, both from abroad and within SA, will be teaching at the school, covering topics such as the radio sky, interferometry, and synthesis imaging. There will be several hands-on sessions where students will have the opportunity to develop their skills in the analysis of radio data and apply what they have learned in the lectures.

Registration is now open.
