LOFAR Multifrequency Snapshot Sky Survey (MSSS): Planning and Busy Day

Description: MSSS is LOFAR's first all-sky imaging survey. Progress toward a 45" catalog and data release continues, and in this workshop we will discuss project plans and science goals, as well as undertake some focused activity to continue to characterise the MSSS data products.

Room: Sydney Nanoscience Hub (SNH) 3001

Contact: Joe Callingham - or George Heald -

MWA Epoch of Reionisation Busy Days

Description: The MWA EoR collaboration members will meet to discuss plans for the EoR experiment, work on a common data calibration framework, and undertake joint analysis of current data challenges.

Room: Physics Building 414A (Dec 10) & Sydney Nanoscience Hub (SNH) 4001 (Dec 12)

Contact: Cath Trott -

Note there will be an additional workshop held on Sunday 10 December from 11:00-16:00 in Physics Building 414A.

MWA/GLEAM busy day

Description: The MWA GLEAM collaboration members will meet to discuss plans for the GLEAM project.

Room: Physics Building 414A

Contact: Guilaume Drouart -

Spectral lines at low frequencies

Description: The metre-wave regime is one of the last largely unexplored windows on the universe. It hosts unique spectral line transitions from both atoms and molecules. In this workshop we will discuss (i) the progress made with the SKA precursors and pathfinders and (ii) common strategies and goals towards SKA phase 1.

Room: Physics Building 350

Contact: Raymond Oonk --

Low frequency pulsars

Description: Discussions of MWA beamforming and general low frequency pulsar work.

Room: Physics Building 327B

Contact: Steve Tremblay --
