|Title:||Developments at IDIA – Preparation for MeerKAT|
|Date:||Thursday, 8 September 2016|
|Time:||11:00 - 12:00|
The MeerKAT Large Survey Projects (MLSPs) will use thousands of hours of MeerKAT’s operational lifetime to address a variety of important questions related to galaxy formation, extreme physics and the evolution of our universe.
The imaging MLSPs are largely commensal and share lots of overlap – both scientifically and technically.
At IDIA, we plan to exploit the scientific overlap between the imaging MLSPs to develop a calibration and imaging pipeline framework – which we are currently developing and testing on the African Research Cloud Proof of Concept ARCADE.
In my talk I will provide an overview of the imaging MLSPs and I will talk about the pipeline design and progress that we have made with ARCADE thus far.
