Description & Aim
Astro Hack Week is a mixture of data analysis summer school and unconference-enabled collaborative research. There are no formal prerequisites. Participants will learn the theoretical foundation of, and practical knowledge in, statistical and machine learning methods crucial to modern astronomical data analysis. We welcome participants to bring their own research projects with them; Astro Hack Week is a great place to apply new skills and methods, and work with others to move these projects forward. It is also an opportunity to work on something new, and we encourage participants to apply their technical knowledge to outstanding problems in the astronomical community.
