SALT MeerKAT collaboration meeting

On 5 November, the SALT-MeerKAT collaboration meeting was held at the Pineland offices of SA SKA.  The meeting looked at the interactions and potential collaborations between the large astronomy facilities available in South Africa including SALT, MeerKAT, and HESS.   It brought together members of the different communities to discuss current and future directions of the different projects.   Talks for the meeting and the programme for the meeting have been made available for those interested and weren't able to to attend.   The meeting had some interesting and exciting results and one of the main outcomes was the formation of a group to explore future capabilities at SAAO to support the large key MeerKAT science projects.
