Applications are open for the sixth Astro Hack Week! The 2019 edition will be held at the Kavli Institute for Cosmology @ Cambridge University in Cambridge, UK, from August 26 to August 30, 2019. All scientists, including graduate students, senior undergraduates, faculty, postdocs, as well as anyone whose work relates to astronomy outside academia, are invited to apply to attend.
Due to the interactive nature of the workshop and our space constraints, we expect to cap attendance at approximately 50 people.
Astro Hack Week is a mixture of data analysis summer school and unconference-enabled collaborative research. There are no formal prerequisites. Participants will learn the theoretical foundation of, and practical knowledge in, statistical and machine learning methods crucial to modern astronomical data analysis. We welcome participants to bring their own research projects with them; Astro Hack Week is a great place to apply new skills and methods, and work with others to move these projects forward. It is also an opportunity to work on something new, and we encourage participants to apply their technical knowledge to outstanding problems in the astronomical community.
For more information, please see our website at http://astrohackweek.org and https://www.kicc.cam.ac.uk/events/astrohackweek19. The application form is available here: https://goo.gl/forms/zISf627conUJt2Vz2, and will be open until March 18. Selected participants will be notified by mid-April.
We hope to see you in Cambridge in August! Please forward this announcement to anyone who may be interested. Email us if you have any questions or concerns: firstname.lastname@example.org
