*About the Talk:* Astronomy is facing a tsunami of new data as a slew of
new telescopes come online within this decade. Within these vast datasets,
astronomers will search for rare objects (needles in the haystack) as well
as trace statistical trends with samples of millions and even billions of
celestial objects. The Square Kilometer Array is the largest radio
telescope ever envisioned. It is now being built by an international
consortium (which includes India) at two remote sites - one in Australia
and another in South Africa. Prof. Yogesh Wadadekar will describe how
astronomers and engineers are working together to understand and solve
challenging problems in data acquisition, transport, processing, delivery
and visualisation of exabyte scale datasets.

Chaired by:

*Prof. G. C. Anupama *

[President, Astronomical Society of India, Former Senior Professor & Dean,
