Talks now available - Follow links on the Program page

Held at the Marriott University Park

NOAO is hosting a workshop, “Tools for Astronomical Big Data,” to survey the present state of the art in addressing the challenges of conducting research with large astronomical data sets. Topics will include:

  1. The visualization of large datasets.
  2. A survey of efficient algorithms for processing large datasets.
  3. The efficient development of, and interaction with, large databases.
  4. The use of “machine learning” methodologies.

*Wednesday March 11 will be a transition day between the “Tools for Astronomical Big Data” (morning) and “DECam Community Science Workshop” (afternoon) workshops. Participants registered for either workshop may attend morning and afternoon sessions that day; or you can register for both at a discounted rate.


Tools for Astronomical Big Data is sponsored by the National Optical Astronomy Observatory (NOAO). NOAO is operated by the Association of Universities for Research in Astronomy (AURA), Inc. under cooperative agreement with the National Science Foundation.
