The "Open Digital Infrastructure in Astrophysics" workshop was held June 4 - 5, 2019 at the Kavli Institute for Theoretical Physics (KITP) at  UC Santa Barbara. This workshop was sponsored by the Ford and Sloan Foundations through their Digital Infrastructure Research program.

This special two-day workshop was  held while the KITP programs "Better Stars, Better Planets: Exploiting the Stellar-Exoplanetary Synergy" and "The New Era of Gravitational-Wave Physics and Astrophysics" were in session. Participants in these programs were encouraged to attend our workshop.

The workshop’s intent was to highlight open-knowledge digital infrastructure, software instrument communities, metrics for success, developer models, diversity efforts, funding profiles, and sustainability plans.
