Panel discussion on SIP Challenges:
The future of SIP and a cross-disciplinary solar/heliophysics data analysis community
|Panelists:||David Berghmans, Farzad Kamalabadi, David Van Dyk|
This panel discussion will address the future of data analysis in the solar/helio community, debating questions such as:
- What are the science questions we need to address, and how can SIPWork support them?
- What are the SIP challenges related to the - scientific as well as technical - preparation of instruments on future missions such as Solar Orbiter?
- How can we better prepare the transition to operational tools for space weather applications?
- In which problems can we expect major progress by importing concepts that are already used in other fields?
- Are there any synergies to be found with other space science communities in order to meet these SIP challenges?
- Should we have a stronger collaboration with more established communities such as astrostatistics? What form would that collaboration take?
- Would a solarstats or heliostats workshop be of interests? (Had one in CFA in 2012) What form would that take?
- How can we strengthen relations with other signal processing disciplines in general?
- Should we be working more with programs that train young scientists such, as the Heliophysics Summer School?
- Would a Handbook on Solar Information Processing be useful (similar to the Kamide & Chian's Handbook of the Solar-Terrestrial Environment) ? Or an article in Living Reviews? What would be the most useful: a handbook with numerical recipes, a stronger focus on the physics?
