Using software support resources acquired under the 2017B semester of the ADACS Software Support scheme, ADACS has enabled an outward-facing user interface for GBKFIT: a publicly-available application for kinematic galaxy modelling. Features include a range of accepted data inputs (including flux, velocity, and velocity dispersion maps, as well as spectral cubes) and kinematic models (including exponential, flat, arctan, Epinat, and more), all wrapped in a secured web application (including a relational database and workflow management system) enabling providing support for a rich user community.
We are pleased to announce the new dates for the Sky Mining Hackathon: join us in Perth, 16-18 February 2018 to tackle astronomy challenges! This event is a unique opportunity …
Within Q1/2 2018, ADACS will provide the equivalent of a minimum of 1 full-time computational scientist as a resource to the community. A diversely qualified team will participate, with expertise covering a variety of areas including (but not limited to): system analysis and design, scientific computing, high-performance computing, data science, web development, large-scale scientific databases, cloud computing and scientific visualization.
Sky Mining 2017 is a public hackathon taking data science to the skies. The event will bring together scientists, coders, technologists and enthusiasts from academia and industry to work on …
The course is aimed at postgraduate students and researchers who want to learn more about high-performance computing.
No previous knowledge is assumed and you can register for some or all of the sessions. However, please be aware that the different sessions follow on from each other.
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 astronomers.
