Hot-wiring the transient universe VI19.08.2019 - 22.08.2019 Hot-wiring the transient universe VI
Calendar
General
Location

Hot-wiring the Transient Universe 6 will explore opportunities and challenges of massively parallel time domain surveys coupled with rapid coordinated multi-wavelength follow-up observations. The interdisciplinary agenda includes future and ongoing science investigations, information infrastructure for publishing observations in real time, as well as novel data science to classify events and systems to optimize follow-up campaigns. Time domain astronomy is at the fore of modern astrophysics and crosses fields from solar physics and solar system objects, through stellar variability, to explosive phenomena at galactic and cosmological distances. Recent rapid progress by instruments in space and on the ground has been toward a continuous record of the electromagnetic sky with ever increasing coverage, sensitivity, and temporal resolution.

Baltic Applied Astroinformatics and Space data Processing21.08.2019 - 23.08.2019 Baltic Applied Astroinformatics and Space data Processing

The Conference is intended as a collaboration platform for cross border partnership and knowledge transfer for astronomers, astrophysicists, space researchers and engineers as well as experts in related research disciplines in fields such as informatics, electronics, satellite technology, geodesy and environment sciences. While the general scope of BAASP is wide, this year’s specific themes are astrophysics, space technologies and remote sensing. The conference focuses on the Baltic region but we also cordially invite participants from other countries.

Extremely Big Eyes on the Early Universe09.09.2019 - 13.09.2019 Extremely Big Eyes on the Early Universe
Calendar
General
Location
Rome

This series of conferences, Extremely Big Eyes on the Early Universe, will bring together an international group of experts to review the current state of the art in the study of the high redshift universe and discuss how best to use giant telescopes to learn about it. Among others, we aim to address :

  • What are the key synergies between giant telescopes and other facilities? What are the areas and topics where a concerted effort will yield far superior results than the sum of all parts?
  • What calculations are required in order to make testable predictions and interpret the results of future astronomical observations?

annual ADASS conference06.10.2019 - 10.10.2019 annual ADASS conference

ADASSXXIX logoThe Astronomical Data Analysis Software and Systems (ADASS) conference provides a forum for scientists and programmers concerned with algorithms, software and software systems employed in the acquisition, reduction, analysis, and dissemination of astronomical data. An important element of the program is to foster communication between developers and users with a range of expertise in the production and use of software and systems. The program consists of invited talks, contributed oral and display papers, tutorials, user group meetings and special interest group meetings (called BOFs).

School of Statistics for Astrophysics 2019: Variability and Time Series Analysis06.10.2019 - 11.10.2019 School of Statistics for Astrophysics 2019: Variability and Time Series Analysis
Calendar
General
Location

 The topic of the 2019 session of Stat4Astro is the time series (including variabilities and transient events) that, from celestial mechanics to gravitational waves, from exoplanets to quasars, concern nearly all the astrophysics. Variable phenomena are ubiquitous in the Universe: periodic (orbits, cycles, pulses, rotations...), transient (explosions, bursts, stellar activity...), random (accretion, ejection...) or regular (apparent motions...). The detection, the characterization and the classification of these variabilities is a discipline of statistics called time series analysis. In astrophysics, the detection can be immediate to alert other telescopes, or very detailed to identify some exoplanets or probe the interior of stars. The characterization is required for the physical modeling and understanding. 

The topics that will be covered are:

  • Introduction to the software environment R (Didier Fraix-Burnet IPAG/CNRS/UGA)
  • Introduction to Time Series: (mean modelisation, deseasoning, forecast by exponential smoothing (Gérard Grégoire, LJK/UGA)
  • Base tools for Time Series modelisation: stationnarity, autocovariance functions, standard and partial, frequential approach, autoregressive models, moving average, derived models (Gérard Grégoire, LJK/UGA)
  • Fourier Transform, wavelets, filtering (Marianne Clausel, Université de Lorraine)
  • Times Series: non-linear case (Eric Moulines, École Polytechnique/Académie des Sciences)
  • Machine learning, classification (Ahlame Douzal, LIG-AMA/UGA)
