Large surveys with small telescopes: Past, Present, and Future (Astroplate III)

Large wide-field surveys have been carried out since more than a century, starting with the Carte du Ciel in the late nineteenth century and have been recorded on photographic plates. Wide field surveys are carried out with small telescopes and cameras. The information stored in photographic plates distributed around the globe became accessible only recently, by digitization. Because a huge amount of data is piling up in the data bases of the different projects an important task is to combine the information and harvest it in an optimum way. To this end, the meeting aims to bring together researchers working on the photographic heritage, with those involved in ongoing and future digital surveys. Combing data sets requires in depth knowledge of calibration. Studying the objects requires the sophisticated tools of astroinformatics (big data, deep learning), which shall be addressed in the conference’ program.
