IAU Symposium 325 on Astroinformatics

20/10/2016 – 24/10/2016 all-day
Sorrento, IT

IAU symposium n.325 on Astroinformatics (AstroInfo16) will bring together world-class experts to address the methodological and technological challenges posed by the scientific exploitation of massive data sets produced by the new generation of telescopes and observatories. Astronomy, which already was at the forefront of Big Data science with exponentially growing data volumes and data rates, is now entering the petascale regime at optical, infrared and radio wavelengths.

The Symposium will cover a broad range of topics in astroinformatics: Database Management Systems, Data Mining, multiprocessor computing for astronomy, machine learning methods for classification and knowledge extraction, algorithms for N-point computations, time series analysis and image processing, advanced visualization for astronomical Big Data, cross-disciplinary perspectives and advanced training.
