ADASS topics span the universe. Key themes focus but do not limit abstract submissions.

The key themes for ADASS XXXIII are:

  • Science with data archives: challenges in multi-wavelength and time domain data analysis

  • Software, tools and standards for Solar System, heliophysics, and planetary research

  • Cloud infrastructures for astronomical data analysis

  • User Experience for astronomical software

  • GPU implementations for core astronomical libraries

  • AI in Astronomy

  • Research software engineering as a career path

  • Ground and space mission operations software


We thank everyone who participated in proposing and voting for this year's themes!


ADASS provides a forum for scientists and programmers concerned with algorithms, software, and software systems employed in the acquisition, reduction, analysis, and dissemination of astronomical and planetary science 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 poster papers, tutorials, user group meetings, and special interest group meetings (collectively “Birds of a Feather” meetings). ADASS is known for its many fruitful community discussions during coffee breaks and after hours.
