Astroinformatics 2010

Last week I attended the Astroinformatics 2010 conference at Caltech.  As is the case for nearly all sciences, astronomy is  being transformed by the vast quantities of data now public. The conference explored how innovations in information technology are changing how astronomers interact with data, and how powerful new technologies are becoming available to support analysis and the creation of new products.  The oral presentations are on-line at I recommend Tony Hey’s keynote talk “The Fourth Paradigm and X-informatics,”  which gives an excellent introduction to the field.

I presented a poster on “Running Scientific Workflow Applications on the Amazon Cloud” with Ewa Deelman and Gideon Juve.  Download it here:  AstroinformaticsPoster2_final.
