ISI Astrostatistics Committee and ISI Astrostatistics Network

The foremost goal of the ISI astrostatistics committee is to foster collaboration between members of the statistical and astronomical communities. It also seeks to support existing astrostatistical organizations and endeavors, and will serve as a locus for the dissemination of information regarding astrostatistical education programs, conferences, web sites, and related publications. The committee hopes to serve as an apolitical representative of the astrostatistical community, and will manage the creation and maintenance of a global network of astrostatisticians, consisting of astrophysicists, statisticians, and anyone else having an interest in the statistical analysis of astronomical data.

Members of the executive committee, or committee, are charged with establishing relationships between the committee/network and other organizations which have activities related to astrostatistical analysis. For example, we intend to maintain a working relationship with the American Statistical Association, Royal Statistical Society, NASA, Jet Propulsion Laboratory, and European Space Agency, as well as with existing astrostatistical centers and associations, e.g. the Pennsylvania State Center for Astrostatistics, the California-Harvard Astrostatistics Collaboration (CHASC), the International Computational AstroStatistics Group (InCA), and similar associations.

The committee also intends to sponsor a Journal of Astrostatistics, to be published by Wiley, when it is assured that there will be a steady stream of quality submitted manuscripts. The Journal will be discussed at the next general meeting of the committee and network, which will be held in conjunction with the 2011 ISI World Congress of Statistics in Dublin, Ireland.

The ISI Astrostatistics Network is an essential component of the committee goals. Membership is open to anyone with an interest in the statistical analysis of astronomical data. Members of the Network are able to contribute advice as well as their special expertise to the furtherance of committee goals and objectives, and may, upon approval of the committee, engage in tasks representing the committee and the Network association in general.

A Network membership list will be maintained by the committee. Each member is expected to provide their name, affiliation, email address, and primary areas of astrostatistical interest.
