Telluric Line Hack Week

February 25-28, 2019 / Flatiron Institute / New York City

This workshop is designed to bring together a group of people with a common interest in developing optimal strategies for mitigating the impact of telluric absorption lines on ground-based Doppler measurements. This meeting is intended to build new collaborations, minimize duplication of effort, and facilitate the development of open-source tools for analyzing high-resolution spectra at red and infrared wavelengths. This is not a traditional scientific conference and there won't be any formal talks. Instead, the time will be spent in informal discussions and co-working, with the goal of having tangible results by the end of the week. We gratefully acknowledge support for this workshop from NASA and NExScI.

Pre-registration is Currently Open

Collaboration Policy

To ensure transparency and openness, we have adopted the collaboration policy developed for the Gaia Sprints. This policy requires that participants agree to the following:

All participants will be expected to openly share their ideas, expertise, code, and interim results. Project development will proceed out in the open, among participants and in the world.

Participants will be encouraged to start new collaborations and combine projects. Any participant who contributes significantly to a project can expect co-authorship on resulting scientific papers, and any participant who gets significant contributions to a project is expected to include those contributors as co-authors.

These rules make it inadvisable to bring proprietary data sets or proprietary code, unless the participant bringing such assets has the rights to open them or add collaborators.

Code of Conduct

We are dedicated to providing a harassment-free conference experience for everyone, regardless of gender, gender identity and expression, age, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, ethnicity, religion (or lack thereof), or technology choices. We do not tolerate harassment, abusive behavior, or intimidation of conference participants in any form. As such, we follow the AAS Code of Ethics, and expect all participants to read and abide by the statements in the AAS Code of Ethics.
