Project Details


This award provides funds to support graduate students and young

researchers to attend the conference Statistical Challenges in Modern

Astronomy III, to be held from July 18-21, 2001, at the Penssylvania

State University, University Park, PA. The primary focus of this

cross-disciplinary conference is on applying advanced statistical

techniques for the analysis of observational data in astronomy. One of

the topics of the conference will be statistical methods for extremely

large data sets and information systems. Another topic is statistical

aspects of dealing with data resulting from the current revolution in

observational cosmology. The organizing committee and speakers represent

both communities and cross-disciplinary discussion is encouraged.
