What: 2nd Workshop on Modern Statistical and Computational Methods for Analysis of Kepler Data

Program: ExoStat2014


When: June 18 - 21, 2014

Where: Carnegie Mellon University, Pittsburgh, PA, USA

Local Information: Things to Do in Pittsburgh

CMU Campus Map: Map

Why: This is the first follow-up workshop to a 3-week summer program held at SAMSI June 10-28, 2013 on Modern Statistical and Computational Methods for Analysis of Kepler Data.

Who: Statisticians and astronomers interested in developing and implementing advanced statistical and computational methodology to analyze Kepler data. A number of the participants have been meeting via teleconference on projects started at SAMSI, but we encourage and welcome new participants to join!

Goals of workshop: There will be 20 minute talks on exoplanet research or statistical methodology that could be useful for the analysis of exoplanet data (especially Kepler data) throughout the workshop. Most of the time will be spent in working groups in order to continue current research projects, start new research projects, and plan future projects.
