Information on precautionary site access restrictions to Fermilab's Batavia site in response to coronavirus/COVID-19
We continue to review all events currently planned for the next sixty days and organizers will be notified if their event must be canceled, postponed, or held remotely. Please, check back on Indico during this time for updates regarding your meeting specifics.
As DOE O 142.3A, Unclassified Foreign Visits and Assignments Program (FVA) applies not only to physical access to DOE sites, technologies, and equipment, but also information, all remote events hosted by Fermilab must comply with FVA requirements. This includes participant registration and agenda review. Please contact Melissa Ormond, FVA Manager, with any questions.

Yuan-Sen Ting, "Into the starlight: Learning the Milky Way"

F-108 (Building 362)


Building 362

Abstract: Understanding physical processes responsible for the formation and evolution of galaxies like the Milky Way is a fundamental but unsolved problem in astrophysics. Most stars are long-lived, using the stars as “fossil records” (what is known as Galactic archaeology) can offer unparalleled insight into the assembly of galaxies. The landscape of Galactic archaeology is rapidly changing thanks to on-going large-scale surveys (astrometry, photometry, spectroscopy, and asteroseismology) which provide a few orders of magnitude more stars than before. I will discuss various “phenomenological” opportunities enabled by large surveys. I will also discuss how we could describe substructures in the Milky Way through the lens of deep learning.
