iid2022: Statistical Methods for Event Data. Illuminating the Dynamic Universe15.11.2022 - 19.11.2022 iid2022: Statistical Methods for Event Data. Illuminating the Dynamic Universe

iid2022 is a Workshop and Winter School on Statistics aiming to further and disseminate the use of statistical methods for astronomy, the physical sciences, and related disciplines. The specific focus of this workshop is on statistical methods for event data, given their ubiquity in astronomy. A majority of astronomical data begin with the collection of individual events - typically photons - and therefore they fall under the general area of `event data'. As datasets become more complex and computers enable more sophisticated methods of analysis, it is useful to bring together data experts and mathematical statisticians to discuss how statistical methods are applicable to the data.

What could be a bigger source of "big data" than the entire Universe? Researchers in statistics and computer science are developing new methods to analyse the "big data" that companies and governments want to understand. To test out these methods they need big datasets that everyone can share --- and new astronomical telescopes just happen to be gearing up to generate observations of billions of stars and galaxies that fit the bill. Insights from statistics will help astrophysicists to get the most out of these observations. The Astrostatistics 2023 workshop will bring together statisticians and astrophysicists to learn the technical languages of the two fields and identify how to work together to combine the excitement of space with big data.
