This page presents two overlapping workshops held jointly by the Centre of Computational Statistics and Machine Learning and the Astrophysics Group of the Department of Physics and Astronomy
at University College London. The workshops aim to bring together computer scientists and cosmologists to explore the application of computational statistics and machine learning techniques to data analysis problems in cosmology.

Cosmology Meets Machine Learning Workshop
Tue 3 May - Wed 4 May
Goals:
  • Cosmologists learn about the latest techniques from computer scientists.
  • Computer scientists learn about new data analysis problems in cosmology.
  • Introduce more computer scientists to GREAT10 (Wed 4pm - 5pm).


GREAT10 Workshop
Wed 4 May 4pm onwards: Introduction and update on the GREAT10 PASCAL Challenge
Thu 5 May: GREAT10 unconference (no formal talks, programme is set according to interest)
Fri 6 May: Room, power supplies, internet and coffee/biscuits available.
