ESCAPE at SCiMMA Webinar
Views 10,150

The Scalable Cyberinfrastructure to support Multi-Messenger Astrophysics (SCiMMA) project invited ESCAPE to present its goals and work, specially the latested developments on ESCAPE DIOS and ESCAPE ESAP. Klaas Kliffen, Yan Grange and John Swinbank (ASTRON and ESCAPE members) did a presentation to an international audience.

Multi-Messenger Astrophysics (MMA) is an exciting new field of science that combines traditional astronomy with the brand new ability to measure multiple signals -- such as gravitational waves, gamma rays, and high-energy neutrinos -- that originate from individual celestial events. But, the promise of MMA can be realized only if sufficient cyberinfrastructure is available to rapidly coordinate, combine, and analyze the large-scale distributed data from a multitude of astronomical detectors and observatories.

About SCiMMA

Multi-Messenger Astrophysics (MMA) is an exciting new field of science that combines traditional astronomy with the brand new ability to measure multiple signals -- such as gravitational waves, gamma rays, and high-energy neutrinos -- that originate from individual celestial events. But, the promise of MMA can be realized only if sufficient cyberinfrastructure is available to rapidly coordinate, combine, and analyze the large-scale distributed data from a multitude of astronomical detectors and observatories. The goal of the SCiMMA project is to assess MMA's technical requirements by carrying out community engagement efforts, and then support these requirements by developing cyberinfrastructure and software systems. SCiMMA's main directive is to identify the key questions and cyberinfrastructure projects that are required by the MMA community to take full advantage of current facilities and imminent next-generation projects, and begin prototyping systems to meet these needs.

SCiMMA is funded by the North American National Science Foundation.
