Keck Institute for Space Studies (KISS) half-day short course

This short course is being held in conjunction with the KISS study “Digging Deeper: Algorithms for Computationally-Limited Searches in Astronomy.”

This series of talks will review some of the tools and techniques used for detection and classification on transient signals in massive data streams in astronomy, e.g., searches for gravitational wave sources, or transient events in synoptic sky surveys. The focus of this short course is on advanced data mining and statistical techniques and algorithms.

Speakers include:
09:15 - 10:15 Signal analysis and parameter estimation in gravitational wave astronomy, Badri Krishnan (AEI)
10:15 - 10:45 Keynote talk: New Developments in Time Series Analysis, Jeff Scargle (NASA Ames)
10:45 - 11:15 Coffee break
11:15 - 11:45 Automated Classification of Transients, Ashish Mahabal (Caltech)
11:45 - 12:15 Machine Learning applications in Time Domain Astronomy, Pavlos Protopapas (CfA)

The short course will be videotaped and made available on the KISS website within two weeks after the workshop is completed.

Seating is limited and is available on a first come, first served basis - and no registration is required. An informal lunch is provided for all short course attendees.

The JPL hang tag used by employees with on-Lab parking privileges is the only permit required for campus parking. Employees who do not have on-Lab parking privileges can obtain a hang tag created for this purpose from JPL parking coordinator Robert Kennedy (818-354-4586, Building 310-108B, 9/80 schedule). Please park in the California Blvd. Parking Garage that is located under the athletic field. The garage is south of California, east of Wilson and west of Arden. As you enter into the garage, go straight ahead (head down). Make sure you park in one of the COMMUTER spots (look for a red stripe on the ground in front of the parking spot) and have your hang tag visible.

Please see for more details.
