The Fermilab Student \& Postdoc Assocation (FSPA) represents the community of young researchers at Fermilab, including all student and postdoc Users. Each year, a core group of democratically elected officers organizes social and academic events to engage this community, and works closely with the Users Executive Committee to represent the interests of all young visiting researchers at...

Liquid Argon Time Projection Chamber (LArTPC) technology offers a high resolution image of ionizing particle trajectories in liquid argon providing unique features for pattern recognition. Traditional methods used to reconstruct the data in order to extract physics results involve writing a bottom-up chain of algorithms, which involves a complex sequence of signal waveform processing, 2D...

Liquid Argon Time Projection Chambers (LArTPCs) such as MicroBooNE provide excellent calorimetric information and image quality resolution. To take full advantage of these benefits, MicroBooNE is developing a high efficiency, high purity reconstruction chain. OpenCV is an open source computer vision library with functions to aid in pattern recognition and image processing. Such software has...

The Dark Energy Survey (DES) is observing a large expanse of the southern sky in unprecedented depth and detail. Over the course of 5 years, it will have observed almost half a billion galaxies. Among these galaxies will be the largest single sample of strong gravitational lensing events ever recorded. Strong lenses have potential to provide new and distinct constraints on the content of dark...
