EPoS 2024 - Answering the Big Questions: Are we making progress?

  • Start: May 12, 2024
  • End: May 17, 2024
  • Location: Schloss Ringberg
  • Host: Jürgen Steinacker
  • Contact:
EPoS The Early Phase of Star Formation is a series of conferences for a field where still no paradigm has been established and consequently opposing views require intense debates. EPoS meetings have an unusual form: they devote substantial time to discussions after the presentations, after each session, in the poster sessions, and in focus groups. [more]

ML4ASTRO - Machine Learning in Astrophysical studies

  • Date: Jun 25, 2024
  • Location: Studio Villa Bosch, Heidelberg
  • Host: Tobias Buck (IWR), Morgan Fouesneau (MPIA), Guillaume Guiglion (ZAH/LSW, MPIA), Ralf Klessen (ZAH/ITA), Annalisa Pillepich (MPIA), Kai Polsterer (HITS)
  • Contact:
The workshop's theme is the application of machine learning to solve astrophysical problems. This event will be a one-day workshop and unconference, where we will discuss and learn from each other about applying techniques to solve very similar problems in various contexts. We hope this workshop could lead to some new collaborations or initial joint studies. We will dedicate a significant amount of time to unconference sessions and informal discussions. [more]
