Promotional Banner for April 25-26, 2019 Workshop

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.

Registration Fee: $150.00 USD (includes breakfast and light refreshments mid-morning and afternoon)

To Submit Talk/Poster Abstract: Please submit completed Abstract Submission form .



Space permitting, workshop talks are open to faculty and staff from all local (Maryland & Washington DC) institutions without registering.  Unregistered participants are asked to refrain from sampling the refreshments.

The Space Telescope Science Institute (STScI) is a short ride away from major airports and train stations. Find information related to driving directions and relevant transportation resources on our Getting Here page.
