Astronomical Data Analysis Software & Systems

The Astronomical Data Analysis Software and Systems (ADASS) conference is held each year at a different hosting astronomical institution. The conference provides a forum for scientists and programmers concerned with algorithms, software and software systems employed in the acquisition, reduction, analysis, and dissemination of astronomical data. An important element of the program is to foster communication between developers and users with a range of expertise in the production and use of software and systems. The program consists of invited talks, contributed oral and display papers, tutorials, user group meetings and special interest group meetings (called BOFs).

ADASS 2014 Survey

We are conducting a survey to ascertain the community's needs and wants in relation to the ADASS conference.

ADASS has been a successful conference series for 23 years. If it is to continue to be successful and relevant we need to ensure that it provides what we, the astronomy software, methods and algorithms providers and users need from a regular conference.

To this end we would appreciate if you would spare a few minutes of your time to fill out the ADASS 2014 questionnaire. This consists of 15 non-mandatory questions about the content, style and governance of ADASS.

The survey is available here.

We encourage you to participate and look forward to receiving your comments and suggestions.
