Monday, February 11th – Thursday, February 14th, 2019
The Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite (TESS) will obtain precise, high-cadence, time-series photometry of at least 85% of the sky enabling exciting discoveries about exoplanets, stars, and the transient universe. Public release of the first four sectors is expected in January 2019. This workshop will kickstart community analysis by describing characteristics of TESS data, resources at NASA archives, and relevant community software. Experts in these areas will present their tools and techniques for working with TESS data. Special topics of this workshop will include innovative algorithms, mitigating data anomalies, lessons learned from similar time-series data, and combining TESS data with data from other observatories. New science results based on the TESS data will be presented at the TESS Science Conference at MIT later in 2019.
We expect this data workshop to have approximately 60 participants. The format will consist of talks, tutorials, discussion, posters, and a sprint day. Attendees are invited to lead tutorials that demonstrate their publicly available software. The workshop will include a sprint day where participants can explore TESS data and tools in the context of a few shared projects. Relevant software will be installed in a common computing environment readily available to all participants.
The conference will run from 9am to 5pm on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday and from 9am to 1pm on Thursday.
