DES Cluster Finder Comparison Meeting




DES Cluster Finder Comparison Workshop

  • Thursday May 22 through Saturday May 24

  • The Center for Cosmology and Astro-Particle Physics (CCAPP) at The Ohio State University (OSU) is holding The DES Cluster Finder Comparison Meeting in Columbus, Ohio on May 22-24. Participation is by invitation only and is sponsored by CCAPP. This meeting will bring together the various groups within the Dark Energy Survey (DES) that are working on developing and/or testing cluster finding algorithms in order to compare the different approaches being currently pursued. Our final goal is to clearly identify and characterize the relative strength and weaknesses of each of the methods, in order to improve the quality of the optical cluster finding techniques that will be available for the DES.
