第四届Square Kilometre Array (SKA) 暑期学校将于2018年8月8日-12日在上海天文台举行。本次暑期学校面向全国各高校优秀高年级本科生、研究生招收50名学员以及30名青年学者。此次暑期学校得到了MWA天文台、国家科技部、中国SKA办公室和中国科学院的支持。

国际大科学工程 - 平方公里阵列射电望远镜(SKA)是由全球超过十个国家计划合资建造的、世界最大综合孔径射电望远镜,树立人类认识宇宙和探索自然历程中新的里程碑。SKA即将开建,中国是SKA的创始成员国之一。中国自主建设的21CMA 是世界上最早投入观测运行的用于宇宙再电离探测的专用低频射电望远镜阵列,工作波段在 50 到 200 MHz 范围,可以接收来自宇宙红移 6~27 之间的中性氢辐射。默奇森宽视场阵列(Murchison Widefield Array,MWA)是建于澳大利亚的低频射电望远镜阵列,也是SKA的先导望远镜之一,已经积累了18PB观测数据,提供了未来可以用于SKA 低频数据处理的软件和方法。希望学员们能通过这个暑期学校对SKA低频科学和观测有一个基本的了解,为使用SKA低频先导望远镜数据开展相关科学研究打下基础。

人才培养是保障我国未来实现SKA科学目标的关键。“中国SKA系列暑期学校”旨在培养SKA科学和数据处理人才,面向研究生、本科生、及青年学者。第一、二、三届暑期学校分别于2013、2014、2015年在贵阳、上海和昆明举办。本届暑期学校将集中于SKA低频观测的数据方法和相关科学,在科学内容上将涵盖宇宙再电离时期的中性氢探测、低频连续谱巡天、脉冲星、偏振巡天、星系团、射电暂现源探测等。

Prof. Steven Tingay (Curtin University)

Prof. Steven Tingay is Director of the Curtin Institute of Radio Astronomy at Curtin University, Deputy Director of the International Centre for Radio Astronomy Research, and Director of the Murchison Widefield Array (MWA) project. Tingay has authored or co-authored over 100 papers in international refereed journals since 1994 and has attracted over $40m of research funding. His main interests are in radio astronomy, astrophysics and radio astronomy instrumentation. Over the last ten years, Tingay has led the development of software and hardware that has upgraded Australia's suite of radio telescope facilities. He currently leads the MWA project, a $50m low-frequency radio telescope currently under construction in the remote Murchison region of Western Australia. The MWA is a Precursor for the Square Kilometre Array (SKA). Tingay has been an active contributor to the international SKA project for the last decade.

Prof. Lister Staveley-Smith (UWA)

Professor Lister Staveley-Smith is Science Director (UWA) within the International Centre for Radio Astronomy Research (ICRAR). His research is oriented towards frontline radio astronomical observations with world-class facilities, and preparing the path for future telescopes such as the Square Kilometre Array (SKA) and its precursors, the ASKAP and MWA telescopes. ASKAP and MWA will be built in Western Australia which is also one of the two sites for the SKA.

Prof. Melanie Johnston-Hollitt

Prof. Johnston-Hollitt's primary research interests are cosmic magnetism and observations of galaxy clusters, primarily through the use of radio telescopes. She has authored over 200 publications, and supervised over 30 research students (Honours, MSc and PhD). She has served on the Editorial Board of Publications of the Astronomical Society of Australia since January 2015, commencing a 3-year term as Editor-in-Chief from January . She is known for having worked on the design, construction, and international governance of several major radio telescopes including the Low Frequency Array (LOFAR), the Murchison Widefield Array (MWA) and the upcoming Square Kilometre Array (SKA). She is currently Director of the Murchison Widefield Array and a full Professor at the Curtin Institute of Radio Astronomy at Curtin University and the International Centre for Radio Astronomy Research.

Dr Ben McKinley

Dr Ben McKinley is a Research Fellow at Curtin University in Australia. His current research is focused on using the Murchison Widefield Array (MWA) telescope to measure the global, redshifted 21-cm signal from the Epoch of Reionisation. Other research interests include studying the closest radio galaxies with the MWA and data from telescopes covering the full electromagnetic spectrum. He is also a member of the SKA Cosmic Dawn and Epoch of Reionisation Science Working Group and involved in testing of the most recent SKA prototype deployed at the Murchison Radio-astronomy Observatory in Western Australia (future site of the SKA-low). Dr McKinley is a member of ASTRO-3D, the Centre of Excellence for All-sky Astrophysics in 3 Dimensions, which is a new Australian organisation that aims to understand the evolution of the matter, elements and light in the Universe from the Big Bang to the present day.

Dr. Paul Hancock (Curtin University)

He is an Early Career Research Fellow currently at Curtin University. He obtained my PhD at the University of Sydney, where he worked on the Australia Telescope 20GHz (AT20G) survey. he then continued to work as a Super Science Fellow in radio transients at USYD where he helped to create the Variable And Slow Transients (VAST) prototype pipeline, including the source finding algorithm Aegean. his interests are in radio transients including: supernovae, gamma-ray bursts, and tidal disruption events. He leads two projects that use the Murchison Wide-field Array (MWA). The first project uses the scintillation of extragalactic radio sources to trace the turbulent structure of gas within the Milky Way. The second project uses the MWA to search for radio emission from fireballs as they burn a path through our atmosphere.

Dr. Steven Tremblay (Curtin University)

Dr Steven Tremblay is based at Curtin University in Perth and works on Fast Radio Transients in CAASTRO's "Dynamic Universe" theme.

Dr. Jack Line (University of Melbourne)

Dr. Christopher Riseley (CSIRO)

Dr. Christopher Riseley is an OCE post-doctoral fellow, specialising in low-frequency radio astronomy, galaxy clusters and polarimetry. He is based in CASS's still rapidly expanding Perth office, and recently obtained his PhD from the University of Southampton in the UK. His thesis focused on detecting radio emission from galaxy clusters using SKA pathfinder and precursor radio telescopes, and developing low-frequency source catalogs from sensitive widefield radio images.
