Call for Contributions and Registration: Cosmology Meets ML

Registration and abstract submission for a small number of contributed
talks is now open for two overlapping workshops in London 3-6 May 2011.

Tue 3 – Wed 4 May: Cosmology Meets Machine Learning Workshop

Wed 4 pm – Fri 6 May: GREAT10 PASCAL Challenge Workshop

Please see the meeting webpage for more

The workshops aim to bring together computer scientists and cosmologists
to explore the application of computational statistics and machine
learning techniques to data analysis problems in cosmology. They are held
jointly by the Centre of Computational Statistics and Machine Learning and
the Astrophysics Group of the Department of Physics and Astronomy at
University College London.

We invite abstracts on topics in the following areas:
– challenging problems in cosmology data analysis
– applications of machine learning methods in cosmological data analysis
– work related to the GREAT10 Challenge

Submissions should not exceed 200 words and will be judged on technical
merit, the potential to generate discussion, and their ability to foster
collaboration within the community.
Submissions should be sent to: london_may11(at)
