Dany Vohl: "New approaches to Volume and Velocity challenges of Modern Astronomy" Fundamental problems facing modern astronomy relate to processing, visualization, analysis, and remote access to data. As the volume and velocity at which data is generated and stored increases, new approaches, methods and analytical tools are required to let us fully explore information hidden within our data. In this talk, I discuss ways to enhance and streamline analysis tasks in surveys by adopting a set of informatics tricks—including concepts like display ecology, visual and immersive analytics, `single instruction, multiple visualizations`, graphics shaders, and data compression—to alleviate a number of bottlenecks and offer a better experience for individuals and research teams.
