Registration for the 2019 WFIRST Exoplanet Imaging Data Challenge
WELCOME TO THE 2019 WFIRST EXOPLANET IMAGING DATA CHALLENGE. The 2019 WFIRST Exoplanet Imaging Data Challenge is for exoplanet scientists of all backgrounds and experience levels who are interested in learning the art and science of high contrast imaging of exoplanetary systems. This is an excellent way to get involved with the intricacies of the first spaceborne high contrast exoplanet imaging mission, as a pathfinder to future flagship missions.

To prepare scientists to participate, we are holding two (optional) tutorial sessions: one at the Flatiron Institute in New York City on October 16&17, and one in Tokyo on October 20 immediately prior to the Spirit of Lyot conference. These tutorial events will allow participants to work with a full set of state-of-the-art simulated CGI and Starshade data, plus pre-cursor RV data for participants to develop their ability to extract and characterize planets.

Participation in the tutorial events is NOT required to register here for the Data Challenge.

More information about the Data Challenge will be posted here as the Challenge proceeds:
