Low Frequency Software Workshop
Chicago August 10, 2008

This is intended to be a small and informal workshop to discuss, and share, specific techniques and algorithms relevant to low frequency data processing and simulation. In particular we are addressing issues specific to the low frequency arrays that currently are being realized (such as ETA, LOFAR, LWA, MWA and PAPER). We also hope to develop collaborations across the different groups.

Examples of questions to be addressed:
  • What is the status of the simulation and data processing software?
  • Where are the largest computing challenges and how do we meet them?
  • What is the software availability?
  • What calibration and analysis tools are we missing that will be needed in the future?
  • What archiving tools will be needed?

    Workshop schedule
    1. Short updates on project status
    2. Array simulators
    3. Real-time calibration and imaging algorithms
    4. Off-line calibration and imaging algorithms
