Stellar deaths and their afterlives are laboratories that test fundamental physics through astrophysics. The advent of extremely wide-field surveys will revolutionize this field, and we will be able to probe new time and energy scales. The community will need to build new infrastructure and change existing paradigms to maximize the science return of these facilities. This workshop will connect scientists with expertise in multi-messenger astrophysics with statisticians, data scientists, and software developers. Together, they will highlight what infrastructure exists, identify how these pieces may be connected together into a larger ecosystem, and develop a roadmap to prepare for future surveys.
The workshop will begin with registration at 8:00 a.m. on Thursday, April 25, 2019. You can refer to the downloadable agenda or the agenda overview below for more details.
