Big Data and Digital Technology Workshop – Thailand

Date: September 2019 tbc

Location: Thailand

Host: NARIT – National Astronomical Research Institute of Thailand

This workshop will discuss how the techniques and technologies being used and developed in radio astronomy to handle the big data aspects of the field can be applied to other fields in industry and commerce to generate economic development in LMIC countries. It will be hosted at NARIT in Thailand where researchers are already involved in several big data initiatives. Experts will be invited from the UK, Australia, South Africa and Colombia among others. This workshop will provide an opportunity to bring together these separate projects and share the experiences so far and discuss new directions for collaboration across continents. It will also be an opportunity for countries who are just beginning to develop radio astronomy to be exposed to the development possibilities in this sphere.
