About The Conference
The annual AstroInformatics conference is a week-long series of research presentations, meetings, poster sessions, and networking opportunities designed to stimulate the development of this vibrant field, which is essential for the data-rich, computationally enabled astrophysics in the 21st century. Topics to be covered include: machine learning and other methods of advanced data analytics, processing, handling, and distribution of large data sets, data visualization, methodology transfer in data science, the role of Astroinformatics in large surveys and projects, emerging technologies, etc.
Housed in the Harvard John A. Paulson School of Engineering and Applied Sciences, the Institute for Applied Computational Science (IACS) trains graduate students to solve real-world problems and conduct innovative research using computational methods, including mathematical models, algorithms, systems innovations and statistical tools. Embedded within a large liberal arts research University, IACS serves as a focal point for interdisciplinary collaborations in computational science and data science at Harvard and the Boston area community.
