Cosmoglobe - Kickoff meeting
Welcome to the inaugural Cosmoglobe kickoff meeting, to be held virtually from June 7-11, 2021.
In this meeting, we will facilitate an open discussion of avenues for cross-experiment joint Bayesian data analysis of past, current and future experiments, either at the level of time-ordered data or pre-processed pixelized sky maps. Our goal in this meeting is to bring together different state-of-the-art radio, microwave and sub-mm experiments with similar interests and challenges, and address these challenges together through joint Bayesian analysis.
A first demonstration of end-to-end Bayesian analysis was recently showcased in the BeyondPlanck project. As a second real-world example, we will present a preliminary reanalysis of the WMAP K-band time-ordered data within the same end-to-end Bayesian framework.
This meeting will be held entirely virtually, and will include presentations from each participating experiment, as well as many opportunities for formal and informal discussions on the future of cross-experimental data analysis.
In addition to data discussions, we are coordinating with the Pan-Experiment Galactic Science Group, a forum to coordinate efforts on understanding Galactic physics.
