THIRD CMM PUCON SYMPOSIUM: Advanced Tools Applied to Frontier Astronomy and other Massive Data-driven Sciences

We are currently organizing the third version of a special topical meeting in southern Chile’s lake district, the CMM Pucón Symposium, that will offer a unique opportunity to address and discuss many of the relevant technical and business issues behind the emerging era of “Advanced Tools Applied to Frontier Astronomy and other Massive Data-driven Sciences”. Our intention is to bring together people from various engineering, technical and scientific disciplines from different R&D organizations with an established tradition of international collaboration, in a special academic and scenic environment, where we can analyze in depth their current activities and discuss in detail possible future ones.

During the last two decades, many important new astronomy facilities have been installed in Chile, among them Gemini-South and SOAR (AURA/NOAO-USA) and VLT Paranal (ESO). Together with the extensive existing facilities, these have created a unique astronomy infrastructure which has triggered the planning and construction of a wide range of major next-generation optical and radio astronomy facilities.  Prominent among these latest projects are the ALMA Observatory (recently inaugurated), the LSST (Large Synoptic Survey Telescope) and the E-ELT (European Extremely Large Telescope), which will bring new frontier of technology requirements for massive data flow management. In fact, the sensing, transmission, process, analysis, storage and archiving of tera- and peta-range volumes of data that these new facilities will need, require a robust set of interdisciplinary skills and this is the right moment to develop them.

Within this context, we are currently organizing the third version of a special topical meeting in southern Chile’s lake district, the CMM Pucón Symposium, that will offer a unique opportunity to address and discuss many of the relevant technical and business issues behind the emerging era of “Advanced Tools Applied to Frontier Astronomy and other Massive Data-driven Sciences”. Our intention is to bring together people from various engineering, technical and scientific disciplines from different R&D organizations with an established tradition of international collaboration, in a special academic and scenic environment, where we can analyze in depth their current activities and discuss in detail possible future ones.

We hope that you can accept our invitation to participate in the Third CMM Pucón Symposium 2013, a workshop conference focused on the advanced mathematical and computational tools as well as the engineering and technological aspects involved in frontier astronomy and other massive data-driven sciences, including ultra-high speed networking, e-science/grids/high performance computing, data storage/processing/ archiving, data imaging, robotic telescopes, data mining, search engines, time series and automatic classification, virtual observatories, remote astronomy and optimal scheduling.
