Title: Astronomical Data Analysis Software and Systems XIX

Volume: 434 Year: 2010 View Volume 434 on ADS
Editors: Yoshihiko Mizumoto, Koh-Ichiro Morita, and Masatoshi Ohishi
This volume of the ASP Conference Series contains papers that were presented at the 19th Annual Conference on Astronomical Data Analysis Software and Systems (ADASS XIX or ADASS2009), which was held in Sapporo, Japan, at the Renaissance Sapporo Hotel during 4-8 October 2009. The conference was hosted by the National Astronomical Observatory of Japan and was the first ADASS conference held in Asia.

The Astronomical Data Analysis Software and Systems conference has been held every year since 1991. The conference provides a forum for scientists and programmers interested in algorithms, software, and software systems for astronomy. The program consists of invited talks, contributed oral and poster papers, and special interest group meetings (called BOFs)

The main themes for the conference included Large Systems, Archive Architectures, Time Domain Astronomy, Visual Applications, and the Virtual Observatory. These topics were discussed in 44 oral presentations, 89 posters, six floor demonstrations, two focus demonstrations, as well as the two BOFs.

This volume includes an overview of the challenges related to multi-wavelength data in actual astronomical projects. It will be of interest not only to scientists and software developers in astronomy, but also to those in other fields of science that have complex systems and huge amounts of data.
