Scientific rationale

The 2023 conference on Machine Learning in astronomical surveys intend to critically review new techniques in the Machine Learning methods for astronomy.

In order to bring together the widest possible community, while limiting the carbon impact, this conference will be organized in hybrid mode and on two physical sites simultaneously, at the IAP in Paris and at the CCA/Flatiron Institute in New York. For the same reason, we encourage the participants to travel by train if possible. The workshop will take place from Monday to Friday in the afternoon only during hours compatible with both time zones.
