ADACS special session

We are running a special session around big data and computing at this year’s ASA annual meeting.
The session takes place Tuesday morning and focuses on the computational challenges of data reduction and analysis as well as software development in the era of petascale data and across multi-national surveys.
The session will be opened by our international guest speaker Kelle Cruz, who will speak about “Collaborations in the extreme”. Kelle is the founder of the blog and member of the Coordinating Committee for the Astropy Project.
