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 Kilometre 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

National Centre for Radio Astrophysics – Tata Institute of Fundamental
Research, Pune, India

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
Indian Institute of Astrophysics, Bengaluru, India

The Pune Knowledge Cluster (PKC) has been established by the Ofce of the
Principal Scientic Advisor to the Government of India. The aim is to bring
together academia, R&D institutions and the industry of Pune and its
surrounding regions to address the challenging problems of the region
through innovative means, using scientic knowledge and engaging highly
skilled human resources.
