Our second workshop will take place at Laboratoire de Physique de Clermont, France. The main topic of the workshop is the anomaly detection in the Open Supernova Catalog with use of machine learning methods. The results of the first workshop can be found here.

Organizing Committee: E. Ishida, M. Pruzhinskaya, F. Mondon

Université Clermont Auvergne, 34 Avenue Carnot, 63000 Clermont-Ferrand, France


Maria Pruzhinskaya


Researcher of Sternberg Astronomical Institute (Moscow). The main scientific interests are supernovae of all types. However, Type Ia supernovae seems to be the favorite one. As a post-doc, Maria spent two years in Clermont-Ferrand, that's why she can easily distinguish 6 semaines Saint-Nectaire from 8 semaines. Homepage:

Matwey Kornilov


If you are using Linux, then you already came across Matwey's code. You can learn more about Matwey by looking at his GitHub account.

Konstantin Malanchev


Python lover. Konstantin works as a researcher at Sternberg Astronomical Institute and as an associate professor at Higher School of Economics (Moscow). He defended his PhD on Non-stationary processes in astrophysical accretion discs under the supervision of Prof. N.I. Shakura. Now he is dreaming to study different machine learning methods in astrophysics. Konstantin's GitHub.

Emille Ishida


Brazilian physicist, working in Astronomy and discovering Statistics. Emille's research is focused in Type Ia Supernovae (photometric classification, characterization and cosmological application), machine learning, Bayesian modeling and the connections between them. She is a leader of the Cosmostatistics Initiative (COIN). Homepage:

Florian Mondon


Ph.D. student of the Laboratoire de Physique Corpusculaire (Clermont-Ferrand, France). Florian is a member of LSST working group where he performs the cosmological analysis with Type Ia Supernovae basing on the modern standardization techniques.

Alina Volnova


Alina works at Space Research Institute of the Russian Academy of Sciences (Moscow). Her main scientific interests are gamma-ray bursts and their optical counterparts. She contributes to the observations of a binary neutron star merger detected through gravitational waves by the Advanced LIGO and Advanced Virgo detectors. Alina is an incredible musician and vocalist.

Anastasia Malancheva


Anastasia finished the astronomy department of Lomonosov Moscow State University in 2013. Her master thesis was dedicated to the catalogues of binary stars. Now she works for Cinimex.

Vladimir Korolev

aeronautical scientist

Researcher of Cen­tral Aero­hyd­ro­dy­namic In­sti­tute (Zhukovsky) and a lecturer at the Department of Aeromechanics and Flight Engineering of Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology (MIPT). The main scientific interests are aircraft dynamics, control systems, identification of aerodynamic characteristics.

Sreevarsha Sreejith


Astrophysicist from India, with the twin pet peeves of machine learning and galaxies. Sreevarsha works as a postdoctoral fellow at the Laboratoire de Physique de Clermont in the LSST group. She is currently working on refining an active learning algorithm for the classification of supernovae.
