2018 Workshop on Computational Intelligence in Astrophysics

Topic
Modern astrophysical research relies on massive amounts of observations from terrestrial and spaceborne platforms, such as LSST and EUCLID. Traditional approaches involving the analysis by experts are facing significant challenges in dealing with the huge volumes of observations. The Workshop on Computational Intelligence in Astrophysics aims at bringing together researchers from the astrophysics and computer science communities in an effort to understand the potential and pitfalls of such collaborations in this emerging topic.
