This event is organized as 3-days workshop devoted to discuss data processing challenges in large imaging surveys. It will be preceded by a 1-day school and will be followed by 1-day hackathon. The whole event will be held in the same location, with no parallel sessions.
Monday, June 12th: astronomical image processing school
Tuesday to Thursday, June 13th-15th: workshop
Friday, June 16th: hackathon (to be confirmed)
The workshop is intended for astronomers and scientists developing astronomical image processing algorithms and software, people in charge of the data processing and data management for large surveys, as well as computer scientists involved in these projects.
Participation of experts from the LSST Data Management and DESC science working groups, as well as from other large photometric surveys such as Euclid and DES is expected.
The school is intended for young scientists, PhD students, postdocs and senior scientists not familiar with astronomical image processing. Introductory lectures will cover basics of instrument response correction, photometry, astrometry and calibration.
The hackathon will be organised around the use of the LSST science pipelines (a.k.a. the stack) and associated tools.
- Pushing the frontiers in astrometry and photometry
- Large photometric surveys
- LSST software stack beyond LSST
- Computing infrastructure, data management and data bases for imaging surveys
Please refer to the Scientific Programme section for more details on the programme.
Participants willing to present their work related to one of the main subjects of the workshop
listed above are encouraged to submit a contribution. For details please visit the Call for Abstracts section.
