Astroinformatics 2017 builds on the successful series of meetings devoted to the growing challenge of scientific exploitation of massive and complex data sets from major observational projects at radio, optical and infrared wavelength, and from associated large-scale simulations.

The meeting will continue the tradition to bring together astronomers, data scientists, statisticians, computers scientists, companies and policy makers to stimulate a cross-disciplinary exchange in this rapidly advancing field of research.
