Virtual Research Conference

Thank you to everyone who participated in the 2021 conference. The SCMA VIII conference is planned to be held in-person on the Penn State campus, June 12–16, 2023.

The use of advanced statistical and machine-learning methodology in astronomical research is growing exponentially. The Statistical Challenges in Modern Astronomy (SCMA) conference series has been the premier venue for astrostatisticians to gather since the 1990s. SCMA VII was held virtually June 7–10, 2021, led by an international scientific organizing committee and hosted by the Penn State Center for Astrostatistics.
