SPARCS X 2021

Capturing Science from the Pathfinder Survey Data

The SPARCS 2021 “Capturing Science from the Pathfinder Survey Data” meeting will be held on 15-19 of November. The meeting will be hosted on zoom and will consist of two sessions per day, separated to accommodate different time zones. Updates on the programme will be added as they are available.

We welcome talks on a broad range of topics from science results to imaging and analysis techniques. Some submitted talk topics to include:

  • Survey and telescope descriptions and updates
  • Source finding and anomaly detection with machine learning
  • Cosmology from large area surveys
  • Surveys of nearby galaxies and the Magellanic clouds
  • Odd Radio Circles
  • Challenges from beams of interferometers
  • Giant Radio Galaxies
