2011 Workshop on Phased Array Feeds for the Square Kilometre Array (PAFSKA2011)

Brigham Young University, Provo, Utah, USA
May 25-27, 2011

Phased array feeds and aperture arrays are transitioning from research to development for synthesis imaging instruments, Square Kilometre Array (SKA) Pathfinders, and large single reflector telescopes. Previous workshops and symposia in Dwingeloo, Sydney, Provo, and elsewhere have played an important role in formulating science requirements, standardizing performance metrics, and accelerating progress through strong international collaborations. As part of series of meetings, Brigham Young University is pleased to host a workshop on PAF system discussions. This year's meeting has a focus on preparing for the PrepSKA WP2.2 CoDR for Square Kilometre Array PAF subsystems but other interested PAF developers are welcome to attend.
