East Asian SKA Science Workshop 2021 (EASKA2021) 1st circular
Online, May 26(Wed) - 28(Fri), 2021
http://ska-jp.org/EASKA2021/

== Purpose ==
The Square Kilometre Array (SKA) project (https://www.skatelescope.org) is an international effort to build the world’s largest radio telescope in Australia and South Africa. The SKA phase 1 construction will start from this year and the science operation will start in late 2020s. While China is an SKA member country, Korea and Japan are observer countries. More than 16 countries in the world intend to contribute to the SKA project.

East Asia is one of the biggest SKA community in the world. Indeed, many East Asian researchers are participating the SKA precursor/pathfinder projects, and two SKA pathfinders, FAST and VERA, are accessible in East Asia. We had SKA science workshops in the past 10 years and the latest 2019 workshop was successfully held at Shanghai, China. Through the workshops, we understood scientific interests each other and looked for new collaborations and synergies. Our discussion became the first step to think about the SKA Regional Centres (SRCs) in East Asia, and became good opportunities for young researchers to develop their skills of communication and discussion. In the last workshop, we also invited key researchers from Australia. Our intention is gradually expanding from East Asia to Asia Pacific.

In this workshop, we further advance our SKA-related activity in East Asia. We organize oral sessions in which we will invite the speakers introducing the SKA project and SKA precursor/pathfinder activities. We will also request scientific review talks and gather many contributed talks covering diverse topics. We also organize poster presentations and breakout discussion to encourage conversations to kick off practical collaborations in future. The organizers welcome world-wide participants and expect successful conference focused on East Asia, following the global SKA Science conference in March 2021.

== Date and Venue ==
We will organize an on-line conference during the following period. We will use the zoom conference system for the main oral sessions and Slack workspace for poster presentations and discussion.
