October 20th, 2016. IAU Symposium 325 on Astroinformatics

Sorrento, October 20-24 (Thu-Mon), 2016

IAU symposium n.325 on Astroinformatics (AstroInfo16) will bring together world-class experts to address the methodological and technological challenges posed by the scientific exploitation of massive data sets produced by the new generation of telescopes and observatories. Astronomy, which already was at the forefront of Big Data science with exponentially growing data volumes and data rates, is now entering the petascale regime at optical, infrared and radio wavelengths.

October 5th, 2015. Astroinformatics 2015 Conference

This is the second announcement for the conference Astroinformatics 2015. The conference will be held October 5-9, 2015, in Dubrovnik, Croatia. 

Astroinformatics is an emerging discipline at the intersection of astronomy and astrophysics and applied computer science and engineering, arising from the need to address the challenges and opportunities of exponential growth of data volumes, rates, and complexity from next-generation telescopes.

August 17, 2015. LSST Community Workshop

The LSST2015 Project and Community Workshop will take place the week of August 17, 2015 at the Kitsap Conference Center in Bremerton, WA. This workshop will allow technical teams involved in building LSST to interact with each other and the broader community. Sessions will focus on topics of cross-cutting significance and interest, with Project Team meetings toward the beginning of the week and Community science-focused topics toward the end including the Observing Strategy Workshop. In addition, participants can self-organize additional meetings before and after LSST2015. A block agenda has been posted to help organize your participation; a detailed agenda will be posted as it is developed. Closer to the meeting date, breakout slides will be linked to the detailed agenda, available by day from the Agenda pull down menu.
