7th Astronomical Data Analysis Conference
Held regularly since 2001, the ADA conference series is focused on algorithms and information extraction from astrophysical data sets. The conference program includes keynote, invited and contributed talks, as well as posters. This conference series has been characterized by a range of innovative themes, including multi-scale geometric transforms such as the curvelet transform, compressed sensing and clustering in cosmology, while at the same time remaining closely linked to front-line open problems and issues in astrophysics and cosmology.
The ADA conference is a strongly interdisciplinary conference allowing researchers coming from different fields (astronomy, mathematics, statistics or electrical engineering) to interact. Each session has at least one invited speaker, and half of the talks are contributed talks.
During ADA-VII one session will be dedicated to advanced algorithms in the astronomical project pipeline. Other sessions will include asteroseismology, exoplanet detection, large scale structures (weak lensing, galaxy catalogs), CMB (source separation, polarization), restoration (map-making, deconvolution, modelling), hyper-spectral data analysis, compressed sensing.
This year the conference will also be proceded by a full week of Tutorials (7-11 May 2012) on various topics of advanced data processing.
