Inter-disciplinary workshop: Where the Earth Meets the Sky

This inter-disciplinary workshop aims at bringing together researchers from Astrophysics and Medical/Public Health Sciences, to discuss the statistical and machine learning methods that are transforming both fields and create an occasion of "cross-pollination".

At a first glance, the two research fields may seem disconnected from each other, as one focuses on problems affecting our planet while the other explores the depth of the sky. However, the framework to address those issues is actually very similar: for example, in the next few years answers shall come from large data sets (digital astronomical surveys, digital medical records) analyzed through innovative “data-driven” tools.

This workshop will be held at the DTU branch of the Cosmic Dawn Center in Copenhagen, 27 and 28 of May 2021. Either with in-person or on-line contributions (depending on the Covid-19 situation), it will offer an ideal space for scientific interaction (talks, discussion panels) and practical coding sessions, both peer-to-peer and led by experts. The program will take into account different levels of skill and knowledge: either if you have several years of experience, or have started only recently to play with these techniques, you are most welcome to participate!
