Who is organizing this school: LAPP is the organizing this school in association with OBELICS partners, PRACE. This international school is being organized in the framework of OBELICS  (Observatory E-environments LINked by common ChallengeS) work package of H2020-ASTERICS project.

 

What is H2020-ASTERICS: the Astronomy ESFRI and Research Infrastructure Cluster, ASTERICS, is a Research Infrastructure funded by the European Commission's Horizon 2020 framework. ASTERICS aims to address the cross-cutting synergies and common challenges shared by world class Astronomy ESFRI Facilities such as SKACTAKM3NeT, LSST, LOFAR, EUCLID, EGOE-ELT.

        It’s 10pm, do you know where your data is?
        In this light-hearted talk we will briefly (!) cover how data management has evolved in astronomy from the first photographic images to the present. I will also give a personal speculation of what the future holds for how we will interact with astronomical data and how researchers, observatories and astronomical data centers can prepare. Finally I will talk about some of the plans for the Large Synoptic Survey Telescope (LSST) Science platform.
