The Australia-China Consortium for Astrophysics Research (ACAMAR) is sponsoring a three-day workshop on the Future of Traditional Survey Science, to be held online on 22, 23 and 24 September 2021. Please see the event website here: https://ftss2021.casconf.cn/
This virtual workshop will focus on optical and near-infrared astronomy, and how these areas of research are now in a transition phase from small-team projects to large-scale mega-surveys. It will aim to familiarise researchers from both China and Australia with each other’s expertise and research interests. In practical terms, software and database tools needed to make data accessible to both communities will feature prominently, as will developments regarding future instrumentation needs.
