30th Canary Islands Winter School of Astrophysics
This yearly school was organised from 4-10 November 2018 by the Instituto de Astrofísica de Canarias (IAC) and by the SUNDIAL-ITN project. The theme of the 2018 edition was centred around Big Data Analysis in Astronomy. It was aimed at early-stage researchers in computer sciences and astronomy. A significant number of the SUNDIAL ESRs participated. In total, over 80 young researchers from all continents attended the week-long training course, during which a world-leading contingent of five instructors delivered a set of lectures, tutorials, and practical sessions. Several of the lecturers are participating in the SUNDIAL-ITN project.
