| From Monday June 29 to Friday July 3, ASTRON hosted the second all-hands meeting of the SKA Science Data Processor consortium. More than 70 people, representing over 30 institutes and companies from 9 countries, gathered to discuss the next phase of the SDP project.
This meeting was just after our Preliminary Design Review and the main focus was on clarifying the schedule and work for the next phase: preparing for delta-PDR and CDR.
While work is important, it is equally important to gather in an informal setting to discuss the finer things in live while enjoying a cool drink. The weather made this and the bicycle rides from the various hotels and restaurants in the area even more enjoyable. Overall a very successful meeting.
