We will have a limited amount of travel funding available (there's a question at the end).
The workshop encourages collaboration between participants, rather than competition, and provides extensive opportunities each day for participants to work with each other. The meeting is aimed at astronomers and researchers from other fields (including, but not limited to, statistics and computer science) with an interest in both astronomy and data science. We welcome applications from researchers at all stages in their careers, as well as from industry. In addition, we welcome participants from a wide range of backgrounds and experience levels with data science-related methods and tools, from beginners to experts.
Participant selection will be made with the goal of enhancing the data science community within astronomy, and we particularly encourage requests to attend from junior astronomers and people who are new to data-driven astronomy.
