Pushchino Meeting: Simulations for SKA

“Simulations for the Square Kilometre Array”

30 July to 1 August, 2007

Pushchino Radio Astronomy Observatory, Russia

The historic Pushchino Radio Astronomy Observatory was the venue for a milestone event in the SKADS project. The workshop entitled “Simulations for the SKA” brought together elements from simulations efforts in pure science, telescope configurations, network, and costing.

From July 30th to August 1st, 2007, Pushchino welcomed over 30 participants, 20 from outside Russia. A major goal of SKADS is the synthesis of efforts in science and technology, ultimately leading to the design of a cost effective and high performance SKA. Within SKADS, this workshop was a joint effort of Design Studies 2 and 3 (Science and Networking) together with design and costing work carried out with input from from DS4 (Enabling Technologies) and Design Studies 5 and 6 (EMBRACE and BEST).
