3rd ASTERICS – OBELICS Workshop
New paths in data analysis and open data provision in Astronomy and Astroparticle Physics.
The 3rd ASTERICS – OBELICS Workshop will survey the development of new software analysis methods in Astronomy and Astroparticle Physics. Follow-up discussions about potential connections between the ESFRI projects and the implementation of EOSC will be part of the programme.
Workshop Venue : Postdoc Centre, Eddington
Workshop Dates : 23-26 October 2018
This workshop is organized in the framework of OBELICS (Observatory E-environments LINked by common ChallengeS) work package of ASTERICS. The workshop is being organised by the French CNRS LAPP (Laboratoire d’Annecy de Physique de Particules) laboratory, the leading OBELICS institute and hosted locally by the University of Cambridge, UK one of the partner of H2020-ASTERICS project.
In this 3rd workshop we will follow up on the discussions that took place in the previous editions of ASTERICS-OBELICS workshops.

In this workshop we will present and discuss the developments of new software analysis approaches (e.g. Bayesian statistics, AI and Machine Learning) developed within the ASTERICS partner ESFRI and other world-class research infrastructures in Astronomy, Astrophysics and Astroparticle Physics. We shall also explore potential links with similar developments in other scientific domains.
The European Open Science Cloud (EOSC) is going to provide a series of services to the scientists. Technical and governance aspects of EOSC will have impact on the research infrastructures involved in ASTERICS and on their own role in the EOSC. Follow-up discussions about potential connections between the ESFRI projects and the implementation of EOSC for FAIR data and service provision will be part of the programme.
The ASTERICS – OBELICS workshops aim at building bridges between ESFRI projects, concerned scientific communities, e-infrastructures, industries and further consortia.
OBELICS activities aim at encouraging common developments and adoption of common solutions for data processing, archive, analysis and access among ESFRI and world class projects in Astronomy and Astroparticle Physics, such as CTA, SKA, KM3NeT, EUCLID, LSST, EGO-Virgo, E-ELT.
