2019 Conference on Big Data from Space (BiDS'19)19.02.2019 - 21.02.2019 2019 Conference on Big Data from Space (BiDS'19)

Big Data from Space refers to the massive spatio-temporal Earth and Space observation data collected by a variety of sensors - ranging from ground based to space-borne - and the synergetic use of data coming from other sources and communities. This domain is currently facing sharp development with numerous new initiatives and breakthroughs from intelligent sensors' networks to data science application. These developments are empowering new approaches and applications in various and diverse domains influencing life on earth and societal aspects, from sensing cities, monitoring human settlements and urban areas to climate change and security. 
 

23rd International Microlensing Conference30.01.2019 - 01.02.2019 23rd International Microlensing Conference

 The particular focus of this year’s meeting will the computational challenges that confront the       microlensing method, particularly challenges that will be relevant to the microlensing program of     NASA’s upcoming Wide Field Infrared Survey Telescope (WFIRST) mission that will also be addressed in the Hack Session. An additional focus of this meeting will be the implications of microlensing results for other exoplanet studies, both theoretical and observational. Other observational and theoretical microlensing results will also be discussed.

Extremely Big Eyes on the Early Universe28.01.2019 - 01.02.2019 Extremely Big Eyes on the Early Universe

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?

ICCMS 201916.01.2019 - 19.01.2019 ICCMS 2019

ICCMS 2019 logoThe 11th International Conference on Computer Modeling and Simulation is the main annual research conference aims to bring together researchers around the world to exchange research results and address open issues in all aspects of Computer Modeling and Simulation.
The current ICCMS 2019 will be held in Melbourne, Australia during January 16-19, 2019. The conference aims to provide a platform for the scientists, scholars, engineers and students from the universities all around the world and the industry to present ongoing research activities, and hence to foster research relations between the universities and the industry. It features invited speeches, parallel sessions and visits.

Rough Landscapes: From Physics to Algorithms07.01.2019 - 11.01.2019 Rough Landscapes: From Physics to Algorithms
Calendar
General
Location

Insights and tools developed by physicists to describe systems that evolve within complex, high-dimensional landscapes have led to the formulation of novel algorithms for a variety of problems in computer science. An especially tantalizing prospect is the possibility that a similar analogy could be developed to understand deep learning. This conference brings together computer scientists, probabilists and mathematicians as well as statistical physicists to document progress and identify opportunities at this interface.

Data Science Splinter Meeting06.01.2019 - 10.01.2019 Data Science Splinter Meeting

The 233 AAS Meeting will cover a wide range of topics and that is aimed specifically at astronomers-turned-data-scientists (ATDS) who are currently working as data scientists in industry. The inspiration for the Meeting is our desire (shared by many of our friends and colleagues from both data science and astronomy) to create a more cohesive community among ATDS and between ATDS and current astronomers (especially those who use data science tools and techniques in their research, as well as those who might be interested in transitioning into a data science career).

FIFTH COIN RESIDENCE PROGRAM15.09.2018 - 22.09.2018 FIFTH COIN RESIDENCE PROGRAM
Calendar
General
Location
Chania

The IAA-Cosmostatistics Initiative (COIN) is a worldwide  endeavour aimed to foster interdisciplinary collaborations to solve data-driven scientific challenges. The COIN Residence Programs are unstructured and intimate meetings, offering the opportunity for collaborative research, learning and sharing of expertise with concrete scientific outcomes.

The HI/Story of the Nearby Universe10.09.2018 - 12.09.2018 The HI/Story of the Nearby Universe
Calendar
General
Location
Groningen

Aim of the conference is to review the state of our understanding of galaxy evolution with an emphasis on the role of neutral hydrogen and the use of neutral hydrogen observations to probe the relevant physical processes. In addition it will focus on the particular advantage of blind surveys for unraveling the details of the role of neutral, ionised and molecular gas in galaxy evolution and the importance and relevance of gas accretion and removal processes. This will include discussing the various observational and analysis methods that are required to fully explore the data forthcoming from large surveys.

Analytics, Inference and Computation in Cosmology03.09.2018 - 14.12.2018 Analytics, Inference and Computation in Cosmology
Calendar
Training
Location
Paris

Cosmology is about understanding the origin and evolution of the universe and the formation of all structures within it. To make progress, we need the most powerful mathematical methods available, computational simulations to compute the quantitative predictions of the theory, and statistical inference to compare these predictions with large cosmological data sets.The IHP trimester entitled "Analytics, Inference, and Computation in Cosmology," will be dedicated to the "what" and the "why" but also, and specifically, to the "how" of cosmological calculation. Is the mathematical toolset of cosmology adequate for the challenges ahead? Where do we need new ideas? Whether it be on advances in analytical techniques, innovative methods or new ways to infer cosmological information from cosmological data, this quarter will be an opportunity to gather the leading experts from around the world to share their expertise, spark new ideas and collaborations, and equip the next generation of cosmologists with the innovative mathematical tools we need a new era in precision cosmology. The trimester will consist of an introductory school in Corsica followed by a three month program at the IHP in Paris. Details information will be found here.
