This is the tenth in the series of the annual Astroinformatics conferences. Their intent is to stimulate the development of this vibrant field, which is essential for the data-rich, computationally enabled astrophysics in the 21st century. Our goals are to assemble researchers working in this field, in order to describe their latest work in this arena, exchange ideas with the other participants, and discuss the future prospects for the field.
Topics to be covered include: machine learning and other methods of advanced data analytics, processing, handling, and distribution of large data sets, data visualization, methodology transfer in data science, the role of Astroinformatics in large surveys and projects, emerging technologies, etc. A special emphasis will be given to the examples of new results obtained through the use of Astroinformatics tools.
The conference is sponsored in part by the Center for Data-Driven Discovery (CD3) and the Astronomy Department at Caltech, the Center for Data Science and Technology at JPL (CDST), Caltech Optical Observatories (COO), Owens Valley Radio Observatory (OVRO), the Zwicky Transient Facility (ZTF), Infrared Procesing and Analysis Center at Caltech (IPAC), the Heidelberg Institute for Theoretical Studies (HITS), Virtualitics, Inc., and the International Joint Conferences on Artificial Intelligence (IJCAI).
