Results for the ADACS Merit Allocation Program – Semester 2022A – are now available

Results are now available for the 2022A Semester of the ADACS Merit Allocation Program (MAP).

After issuing a Call for Proposals (via the ASA email exploder and social media), the Astronomy Data and Computing Service Time Allocation Committee (ADACS TAC) selected the successful proposals from those submitted. Proposals were ranked according to scientific and computational merit. The highest ranked proposals that matched the ADACS resources available for that semester were then selected for delivery. 

The successful projects for Semester 2022A are: 

Congratulations to all successful applicants. Abstracts can be viewed by clicking each proposal title above, or these can also be accessed via the ADACS website. Successful MAP proposals from previous semesters can also be viewed on this website.

ADACS is delivered jointly by Swinburne University of Technology and Curtin University. Since 2017, it has worked on software support projects covering a wide range of topics, including: System Analysis and Design, Scientific Computing, High-performance Computing, Data Science, Web Development, Large-scale Scientific Databases, Cloud Computing and Scientific Visualisation.

Funded by the National Collaborative Research Infrastructure Strategy (NCRIS) Program via Astronomy Australia Ltd (AAL), ADACS provides administrative, logistical, and secretarial support for ADACS TAC. The committee is assembled by AAL to allocate data and computing expert service resources to the astronomy community, primarily through a call for applications and a merit-based evaluation of those applications.

For more information on the ADACS Merit Allocation Program, please contact ADACS Astronomy Support Specialist (Swinburne node), Dr Gregory Poole.
