Workshop on Computational Intelligence in Remote Sensing and Astrophysics

At any given day, locations on the Earth are imaged by numerous satellites, including the European Space Agency’s Sentinel family, which are constantly providing critical measurements regarding the environment and its dynamics. Future observations for cutting-edge astrophysical research from terrestrial and spaceborne observatories, such as SKA, LSST and EUCLID, will provide massive amounts of data. Traditional approaches for the analysis of observations involving the manual exploration by experts are facing significant challenges when dealing with the huge volumes of observations. The workshop on Computational Intelligence in Remote Sensing and Astrophysics (CIRSA) aims at bringing together researchers from the environmental sciences, astrophysics and computer science communities in an effort to understand the potential and pitfalls of novel computational intelligence paradigms including machine learning and large-scale data processing.
