7th September 2015 Small Lecture Theatre, Cavendish Laboratory Cambridge
Remote and extreme environments present new challenges for scientific data acquisition, processing and transfer. From extremely cold and remote locations in the Antarctic to novel geotechnical sensing technologies and the Big Data challenge of the Square Kilometre Array, which will operate from remote desert locations, scientists share challenges of accessibility, physical conditions, power supply and networking.
This joint workshop between the University of Cambridge and the British Antarctic Survey will bring together researchers, developers and engineers addressing complementary challenges in data acquisition, transfer and processing, to share knowledge, develop new connections and collaborations, and experience hands-on demonstrations of state of the art data acquisition and processing technology.
Contributions are invited on the following themes (submission closes 21 August 2015):
- Designing sensors for survival in extreme conditions
- Remote power
- Data transfer and networking
