The SkyMapper Southern Survey

The ANU SkyMapper Telescope maps the entire Southern Survey in 6 optical passbands over a duration of six years. In my talk, I will present the design of the survey as well as its key science motivators, including (i) metal-poor stars in our Galaxy, (ii) supernovae and rare transients, (iii) QSOs and changing-look AGN, and (iv) galaxy evolution. I will present first results, complementary instrumental projects in the domain of spectroscopy and radio astronomy, and give an outlook on the future of SkyMapper.
