2nd ASTERICS – OBELICS International School
Are you a student, postdoc, senior researchers from the domain of astrophysics and astroparticle physics and gravitational waves?
H2020-Astronomy ESFRI and Research Infrastructure Cluster (ASTERICS) is organizing the 2nd ASTERICS-OBELICS International School on Advanced software programming for astrophysics and astroparticle physics, from 04.06.2018 to 08.06.2018
The event is gathering PhD students, postdocs, senior researchers from the domain of astrophysics and astroparticle physics and gravitational waves from across Europe in order to provide theoretical and hands-on training to acquire efficient and fast computer programming techniques, as well as skills for improving their scientific data analysis software.
Python will be the language of reference during the school so intermediate level is required from participants.
Here are some of the topics that will be taken into account in the event:
- Efficient code design
- Project management
- Python libraries for science:
- Python library for astrophysics & astroparticle:
- Machine learning & statistics: connecting scientific data with probabilistic models
The event is organized in the framework of OBELICS (Observatory E-environments LINked by common ChallengeS) work package of the ASTERICS project led by CNRS-LAPP. OBELICS activities aim at encouraging common developments and adoption of common solutions for data processing, archive, analysis and access among ESFRI and world class projects in Astronomy and Astroparticle Physics, such as CTA, SKA, KM3NeT, EUCLID, EGO-VIRGO, E-ELT and LSST.
