Astronomical Data Analysis Conference

In Honor of Albert Bijaoui

Talk for the general public by ALbert Bijaoui


Held regularly since 2001, the ADA conference series is focused on algorithms and information extraction from astrophysics data sets. The program includes keynote, invited and contributed talks, as well as posters. This conference series has been characterized by a range of innovative themes, including curvelet transforms, compressed sensing and clustering in cosmology, while at the same time remaining closely linked to front-line open problems and issues in astrophysics and cosmology.

The ADA VI conference is organized in honor of Albert Bijaoui, and is held in Monastir (where Albert was born).

One session will be dedicated to the GAIA project. Other sessions will include asteroseismology, exoplanet detection, large scale structures (weak lensing, galaxy catalogs), CMB (source separation, polarization), restoration (map-making, deconvoluion, modeling), hyperspectral data analysis, compressed sensing.
