Astrostatistics in Canada and Beyond
28 Feb 2021 - 05 Mar 2021 • Banff Centre in Alberta, Canada
Banff International Research Station for Mathematical Innovation and Discovery (BIRS)
What could be a bigger source of "big data" than the entire Universe? Researchers in statistics and computer science are developing new methods to analyse the "big data" that companies and governments want to understand. To test out these methods they need big datasets that everyone can share - and new astronomical telescopes just happen to be gearing up to generate observations of billions of stars and galaxies that fit the bill. Insights from statistics will help astrophysicists to get the most out of these observations. The Astrostatistics 2021 workshop will bring together statisticians and astrophysicists to learn the technical languages of the two fields and identify how to work together to combine the excitement of space with big data.

McGill University Space Research Conference
05 Oct 2021 - 06 Oct 2021 • Montreal, Canada
McGill University
McGill’s Space Research Conference will bring major sectors of the international space and aerospace communities together for two days to examine space issues from multiple perspectives–including engineering, healthcare, law and space science–all with an eye on the future. Over the coming decades, as the aerospace sector shifts its focus towards enabling space travel, an integrated space and aerospace ecosystem is expected to emerge. McGill’s Bicentennial provides a perfect platform for the conference’s theme, What Is Our Future in Space?, as participants will journey far beyond 2021 to focus on critical space issues 25, 50 and even 100 years in the future. Join McGill’s astronauts and the world’s top academic researchers, business pioneers, and government leaders in space and aerospace for two days of cross-industry exchange in Montreal.
