On behalf of NYUAD Citizen Researcher and NYUAD Center of Astro, Particle, and Planetary Physics (CAP3), it is our distinct honor and pleasure to invite you to the Firmamento Workshop on April 12-14, 2023.

The Firmamento workshop will invite local and international experts in the field of Astronomy and Astrophysics to give engaging lectures and network with other research professionals and enthusiasts. The Firmamento workshop also aims to highlight the developments made by the Firmamento project, through invigorating talks from collaborators and hands-on demonstrations

Firmamento is a Citizen Researcher Project, developed by the Center of Astro, Particle, and Planetary Physics, to aid in the discovery of blazars by providing access to a wide range of well-known and recently released multi-frequency open astronomical data. Public participants will preliminary validate data from a large number of astronomical catalogs and databases using the tools provided by Firmamento and the Open Universe initiative. Using machine learning techniques, NYUAD scientists will verify the data provided by public participants to identify and characterize blazar candidates. This data will be used towards the publication of a new blazar catalog, available as an interactive table, accessible from the Firmamento website.

The Firmamento workshop aims to illustrate the developments made by the project and will include invigorating talks from collaborators and experts to showcase a breadth of research topics in the field of astronomy. The workshop will highlight the following themes:

Topics Covered by Workshop

  1. Space and ground-based multi-messenger astronomy
  2. Blazars and active galactic nuclei
  3. Open data and modern on-line tools
  4. Citizen involvement in science
  5. New analysis techniques
