2nd UK SDP Industry Day
Thu 27 April 2017, 10:00 – 17:00 BST
STFC would like to invite you to the 2nd UK SDP Industry Day, to be held on 27th April 2017 at Homerton College, Cambridge, CB2 8PH.
The Science Data Processor (SDP) is an SKA work package that encompasses the computing hardware platforms, software, and algorithms needed to process science data from the SKA telescope’s correlator or non-imaging processor into science data products. See https://www.skatelescope.org/sdp/ and http://www.ska-sdp.org.
STFC would like to see the UK consolidate its SDP design phase consortium lead position and lead SDP in the construction phase.
The aim of the day is to engage industry in the construction phase opportunities from the SDP Work Package, with talks from STFC on the UK’s approach to leading SDP, from SDP academics on the technical design, and from the SKA Office on project timelines, software delivery challenges and approach; and to facilitate relationship building, with opportunities for companies to provide a brief overview of their capabilities and interests in SDP, and for networking.
This follows on from the 1st SDP Industry Day held in June 2016 which started the process of positioning UK industry for the construction phase of the Science Data Processor work package and related tenders.
We reserve the right to limit the number of people from each company.
Start and end times are subject to change and an agenda will be issued closer to the day.
