We would like to bring to your attention an interdisciplinary workshop "Big Bang, Big Data, Big Computers" (Big3) on computer science and statistics of contemporary Cosmic Microwave Background data analysis, to be held in Paris from Sept 19-21, 2012 in the AstroParticule et Cosmologie (APC) Laboratory at the Paris Rive Gauche Campus of the Université Paris Diderot.

The main idea of the workshop is to bring together people from different walks of science relevant, or potentially relevant, to CMB data analysis. The latter is an extremely active and timely area of observational cosmology, which over the years has contributed enormously to our understanding of the Universe, and which constantly poses novel, exciting challenges in diverse areas of the scientific research, and for which an interdisciplinary approach will be an extremely fruitful — if not the only — way forward.

The workshop will feature a number of invited reviews on selected computer science, signal processing, statistics, and applied math topics alongside talks by CMB data analysis practitioners. We hope that this will infuse CMB data analysis with new knowledge of recent developments in these fields, while at the same time present the CMB problems to a wider audience.
We are looking forward to seeing you in Paris this fall.

Best wishes,

C. Baccigalupi, J. Borrill, A. Jaffe, R. Stompor (for the “Big3” Scientific Organizing Committee)
