Welcome to ASAIP

The Astrostatistics and Astroinformatics Portal ( is a new Web site serving the cross-disciplinary communities of astronomers, statisticians and computer scientists. It is intended to foster research into advanced methodologies for astronomical research, and to promulgate such methods into the broader astronomy community. The WWW public is welcome to read materials in ASAIP. Use the navigation bar above, or the search box at the upper right, to find material throughout the ASAIP Web site.


The ASAIP provides searchable abstracts to Recent Papers in the field, several discussion Forums, various resources for researchers, brief Articles by experts, lists of Meetings, and access to various Web resources such as on-line courses, books, jobs and blogs. The site will be used for public outreach by five organizations: International Astrostatistics Association (IAA, to be affiliated with the International Statistical Institute),  American Astronomical Society Working Group in Astroinformatics and Astrostatistics (AAS/WGAA), International Astronomical Union Working Group in Astrostatistics and Astroinformatics (IAU/WGAA), Information and Statistical Sciences Consortium of the planned Large Synoptic Survey Telescope (LSST/ISSC), and the American Statistical Association Interest Group in Astrostatistics (ASA/IGA).
