ADACS Data Intensive Astronomy Workshop – Melbourne 7-9 August 2017

Recent and planned advances in astronomical observational and simulation facilities are moving astronomy toward a new data-intensive era where “big data” is the norm rather than an exception. While such facilities will provide astronomers with unprecedented levels of accuracy, coverage, and resolution, the increases in dataset size and dimensionality will pose serious computational challenges for most of the current astronomy data analysis and visualisation tools.

This workshop will focus on the tools and platforms needed to enable discovery in the data-intensive era. We will focus this year on the following key themes:


The first two days of the program will include invited talks, contributed talks and BOF sessions. The aim is to encourage communication between software experts and astronomers to meet the big-data challenges in Astronomy. The last day will focus on the All-Sky Virtual Observatory (ASVO) project and the eScience gateways.

The workshop will be hosted by Swinburne Universtiy of Technology.

Key Dates:

This workshop is sponsored by the Astronomy Data and Computing Services (ADACS) initiative. ADACS is funded under the Astronomy National Collaborative Research Infrastructure Strategy (NCRIS) Program via Astronomy Australia Ltd (AAL).
