For further information about Astro Hack Week, please visit http://astrohackweek.org/2019/

The 2019 edition will be held at the Kavli Institute for Cosmology at Cambridge University (Cambridge, UK), from August 26 to August 30, 2019. All scientists,
including graduate students, senior undergraduates, faculty, postdocs, as
well as anyone whose work relates to astronomy outside academia, are
invited to apply to attend.

Due to the interactive nature of the workshop and our space constraints, attendance is capped at approximately 50 people. 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.

Please email us if you have any questions or concerns: astrohackweek@gmail.com

Code of Conduct

The community of participants of Astro Hack Week is made up of members from around the globe with a diverse set of skills, personalities, and experiences. It is through these differences that our community experiences success and continued growth. We expect everyone in our community to follow these guidelines when interacting with others both inside and outside of our community. Our goal is to keep ours a positive, inclusive, successful, and growing community.

As members of the community,

  •     We pledge to treat all people with respect and provide a harassment- and bullying-free environment, regardless of sex, sexual orientation and/or gender identity, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, nationality, ethnicity, and religion. In particular, sexual language and imagery, sexist, racist, or otherwise exclusionary jokes are not appropriate.
  •     We pledge to respect the work of others by recognizing acknowledgment/citation requests of original authors. As authors, we pledge to be explicit about how we want our own work to be cited or acknowledged.
  •     We pledge to welcome those interested in joining the community, and realize that including people with a variety of opinions and backgrounds will only serve to enrich our community. In particular, discussions relating to pros/cons of various technologies, programming languages, and so on are welcome, but these should be done with respect, taking proactive measure to ensure that all participants are heard and feel confident that they can freely express their opinions.
  •     We pledge to welcome questions and answer them respectfully, paying particular attention to those new to the community.
  •     We pledge to be conscientious of the perceptions of the wider community and to respond to criticism respectfully. We will strive to model behaviors that encourage productive debate and disagreement, both within our community and where we are criticized. We will treat those outside our community with the same respect as people within our community.
  •     We pledge to help the entire community follow the code of conduct, and to not remain silent when we see violations of the code of conduct. We will take action when members of our community violate this code such as notifying a workshop organizer or talking privately with the person.


This code of conduct applies to all community situations online and offline, including the conference itself, mailing lists, forums, social media, social events associates with the conference, and one-to-one interactions.

Participants asked to stop any harassing behavior are expected to comply immediately. Attendees violating these rules may be asked to leave the event at the sole discretion of the conference organizers.

This code of conduct has been adapted from the Python in Astronomy Code of Conduct.
