Astronomical Data Analysis Software & Systems

The Astronomical Data Analysis Software and Systems (ADASS) conference is held each year at a different hosting astronomical institution. The conference provides a forum for scientists and programmers concerned with algorithms, software and software systems employed in the acquisition, reduction, analysis, and dissemination of astronomical data. An important element of the program is to foster communication between developers and users with a range of expertise in the production and use of software and systems. The program consists of invited talks, contributed oral and display papers, tutorials, user group meetings and special interest group meetings (called BOFs).



The 27th annual ADASS conference will be held from October 22th to 26th, 2017 at the Sheraton Santiago Hotel and Convention Center, Santiago de Chile, Chile.

The hosts of ADASS XXVII will be the European Southern Observatory (ESO), the Atacama Millimeter/submillimiter Array (ALMA) and the Federico Santa MarĂ­a Technical University (UTFSM) in collaboration with several Chilean governmental agencies and institutions.

This annual conference, held in a different location each year, is a forum for astronomers, computing scientists, software engineers, faculty members and students working in areas related to algorithms, software and systems for the acquisition, reduction, analysis, and dissemination of astronomical data.

The ADASS XXVII program will include invited talks, contributed papers, display sessions, tutorials, computer demonstrations, and special interest ("Birds of a Feather" or BoF) meetings. These activities aim to encourage communication between software specialists and scientists, and to stimulate further development of software and systems to meet the data science challenges of astronomy.

Key themes for ADASS XXVII are:

Registration and abstract submission are open. A roster of invited speakers will be distributed with the second announcement mid-May. General inquiries can be sent to secretariat@adass.cl.

The International Virtual Observatory Alliance (IVOA) meeting will be held immediately after ADASS, on 27-29 October, at the same venue.
