BeyondPlanck - Release Conference
Welcome to the BeyondPlanck Release Conference.
Microwave observations have, during the last half century, transformed cosmology, and helped to establish a highly successful model of the universe. However, the signals which the next generation of experiments are searching for are extremely weak and thus difficult to detect. To make further progress researchers need to have exquisite control of all relevant sources of systematic uncertainties, whether they are of instrumental or astrophysical origin.
The BeyondPlanck project, funded through a H2020 call, aims to address this challenge by implementing the very first global CMB analysis pipeline that supports full end-to-end propagation of uncertainties.
In the BeyondPlanck Release Conference we will discuss the analysis pipeline, and results from it, as applied to the Planck LFI data.
It will be followed by a two-day hands-on tutorial, that will cover global Bayesian analysis with an emphasis on the Commander approach and the BeyondPlanck dataset.
Registration open until November, 13th 2020!

BeyondPlanck lifts veil after veil on the early universe
Nov. 18, 2020 11:05 AM
This BeyondPlanck paper presents new images of polarized emission from astrophysical sky components using never before combined data sets with a brand new approach.
BeyondPlanck solves the calibration conundrum
Nov. 17, 2020 10:54 AM
Instrumental calibration is vital for the results of a CMB experiment to make sense. But how can we calibrate the instrument using measurements that we ideally need to calibrate the instrument to measure properly?
BeyondPlanck digs deep into Planck LFI
Nov. 16, 2020 11:29 AM
The BeyondPlanck collaboration has performed the most detailed analysis of the Planck Low Frequency Instrument (LFI) data to date, leading to a cleaner view of both the early universe and our own Milky Way.
New recipe for mapping the infant universe
Nov. 13, 2020 1:47 PM
Map-making of the Cosmic Microwave Background is an essential step that produces colourful 2D maps of the footprint of the early universe. Here cosmologists set the basis for the innovative map-making algorithm employed in BeyondPlanck.
The hunt for primordial gravitational waves goes Bayesian
Nov. 12, 2020 11:11 AM
The BeyondPlanck collaboration chases faint signals in the cosmic microwave background (CMB), an echo from the Big Bang, with this novel approach.
