Recent breakthrough observations of GW170817A and IceCube-170922A highlight the promise, opportunities and challenges of the emerging field of Multi-Messenger Astrophysics (MMA).

The Community Planning for Scalable Cyberinfrastructure to support Multi-Messenger Astrophysics (SCiMMA; https://scimma.org) project invites interested physicists, astronomers, computer scientists, data scientists and others to participate in an NSF-funded community planning project to understand and document the cyberinfrastructure needs to realize the promise of MMA.

Please join one of our virtual town-hall meetings

to hear about the goals of the project, to discuss community needs, science drivers, use cases, and opportunities for interdisciplinary collaboration. Telephone and other connection information is posted below. Participation by the astronomy, physics, computer science, and data science communities will be crucial to identifying key questions and cyberinfrastructure needs.
