Xiamen

IEEE SSCI is a flagship annual international conference on computational intelligence sponsored by the IEEE Computational Intelligence Society, promoting all aspects of theory, algorithm design, applications and related emerging techniques. IEEE SSCI 2019 will co-locate exciting symposiums, each dedicated to a special topic within or related to computational intelligence, thereby providing a platform for promoting cross-fertilization and collaboration. IEEE SSCI 2019 will be featured by keynote speeches, panel discussions, oral presentations and poster sessions.

The Physical Challenges of Astro-Statistics09.03.2020 - 13.03.2020 The Physical Challenges of Astro-Statistics

Astrostatistics is developing fast as astronomy is confronted to huge volumes of data. This constitutes undoubtly a new era through a move from object- to data-driven astrophysics. The question that needs to be solved is the following: how can we reconnect statistical results obtained by automatic tools such as machine learning or hypothesis testing, with object-driven inferences derived from visual inspection, modelisation or numerical simulation? How do we reconcile a statistical, hence fuzzy, classification with the visual Hubble sequence of galaxies? How do we describe, synthetize, the data cubes (images + spectra) obtained by IFUs? How can we constrain a model of stellar evolution with the statistics of billions of stars? How do we characterize a scaling law in a 4-D or 10-D dimension parameter space? In this workshop, we want to focus particularly on the connection between the tools and the astrophysics, between data analysis and science.

Location

Université Paris Saclay

Th he decade 2020-2030 will be cosmology’s  new golden age with the launch of two spatial missions dedicated to cosmology, Euclid in 2022 and WFIRST in 2026, and the starting of the Large Synoptic Survey Telescope (LSST) observations in 2022. These international projects, ushering in the era of Big Data for cosmology, will require new statistical methods to tackle computational and theoretical challenges,
