The Square Kilometre Array (SKA) promises exquisite radio observations of unprecedented resolution and sensitivity, which will lead to many scientific advances. However, the imaging pipelines of current radio interferometric telescopes have been identified as a critical bottleneck in the “big-data” regime of the SKA.  A lot of progress has been made recently to develop new radio interferometric imaging techniques, for example those based on the revolutionary new theory of compressive sensing.  

This meeting will bring together experts in radio interferometry, with experts in image processing and compressive sensing, to bring emerging radio imaging techniques to bear on real interferometric data.  A significant portion of the meeting will devoted to hack sessions to work together on codes and data.

The official meeting is limited to three days only (23-25th March) but for those that are able to stay longer, we intend to continue with hack sessions over the remainder of the week (26-27th March).  If you are able to, we highly recommend staying for the full week.
