About The Conference


The AstroInformatics conference is a week-long conference featuring research presentations, workshops, poster sessions, and networking opportunities designed to stimulate the development of astroinformatics, a vibrant field 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.

2020 Conference Host

Housed within 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.  Since its inception, the IACS has been a focal point for interdisciplinary collaborations in computational science and data science at Harvard and in the surrounding Cambridge and Boston area communities.
