Astroinformatics 2010 will be in Caltech in June this year.  The announcement is below.

This is a new conference, but it has absorbed a couple of smaller workshop series, including Practical Semantic Astronomy, which was in Caltech in 2008 <http://www.cacr.caltech.edu/semast/> and Glasgow in 2009 <http://www.dcs.gla.ac.uk/workshops/semast09/>.

Best wishes,

AstroInformatics 2010 - Pasadena, CA, June 16 - 19, 2010


Dear Colleague,

This is to announce an international conference on the emerging field of AstroInformatics.  We envision this field as a broader intellectual, organizational, and funding environment, within which Virtual Observatories serve as particular institutions and provide some fundamental functionalities and infrastructure.  Our goal is to both empower and engage the astronomy and applied computer science communities in developing and deploying new tools and methods, enabled by the computation and information technologies.

The conference will bring together a broad range of experts in these and related fields, and address a wide range of topics, including knowledge extraction from massive and complex data sets, trends in computing technologies, visualization, novel scholarly communication, collaboration, and education tools and environments, new and emerging modalities for scientific publishing, community development and sociological changes prompted by the evolving scientific methodology and technology,inter-disciplinary connections, etc.  The last day of the conference will be devoted to the Practical Astrosemantics workshop.

The conference will consist of a small number of invited review talks, and panel-led discussions.  Contributed papers are accepted as posters.

The attendance is limited to about 120 participants, on a first-some basis. Please register early if you are interested in attending.
