Final Meeting May 2014

The GREAT3 Final Meeting took place on 27-29 May 2014 at
Carnegie Mellon University, Pittsburgh, PA.

We heard all about the methods that entered the challenge, meeting the teams, applauding all the winners, and presented first results regarding what GREAT3 has taught us about weak lensing shape measurement.

Local travel information

Participants who are not familiar with the area may wish to check out the annotated campus map, which indicates the meeting location, on-campus housing, the direction to the meeting hotel, and areas where restaurants can be found.

To get to the campus area from the Pittsburgh airport, you have a few options. There are taxis at the airport, which will take ~30-45 minutes depending on traffic and cost ~$50, and there is a city bus (28X, see schedule here) that leaves every 30 minutes, takes 45-60 minutes and costs $3.75 (EXACT CHANGE). The bus is a relatively simple option to navigate since the airport and CMU are the two endpoints of its route. Apparently, there is also SuperShuttle.
