Astronomical imaging in the era of cosmological surveys and giant telescopes: challenges and opportunitiesMS9

The next generation of astronomical imaging instruments will present at the same time incredible scientific opportunities and technical challenges. I will highlight forthcoming developments in the field of astronomical imaging and how they will yield huge amount of data to be processed with unprecedented precision. I will discuss the need for a multidisciplinary approach in the development of new image analysis algorithms and promising ways for attaining crucial improvements in the field.

This presentation is part of Minisymposium “MS9 - Innovative models and algorithms for astronomical imaging (2 parts)
organized by: Silvia Tozza (INdAM/Dept. Mathematics, University of Rome “La Sapienza”) , Marco Castellano (INAF Osservatorio Astronomico di Roma) , Maurizio Falcone (Dipartimento di Matematica, Università di Roma "La Sapienza") , Adriano Fontana (INAF Osservatorio Astronomico di Roma) .
