La Serena School for Data Science: Applied Tools for Astronomy

This is an intensive week of interdisciplinary lectures focused on applied tools for handling big astronomical data. Participants will be instructed in how astronomical data are processed, accessed and analyzed, including reduction pipelines, databases, and scientific programming. The School will be taught by an international and interdisciplinary group of professors who will use real data and examples. Participants will work on team-based projects and be provided training and access to the National Laboratory for High Performance Computing located at the University of Chile's Center for Mathematical Modeling.
