This workshop, held in Sussex, will aim at validating the construction of merger trees, comparing and contrasting merger tree codes, similar to previous comparison projects, such as Halos Gone Mad. Participation is encourage to those interested in contributing codes for comparison, but registration is also open to to others without a merger code. For the full information and details of registration, please see here.
This is a joint workshop between the CosmoComp and Charm
networks focusing on radiative transfer. This small workshop will, including
a theoretical introduction to the subject and hands-on session using
radiative transfer software tools, will take
place in Leiden, The Netherlands in May. For more details and information
about registration please see the school website: cosmocompcharmschool2013.strw.leidenuniv.nl/
Cosmocomp will hold a workshop on generating galaxy mocks for large scale surveys
in Barcelona, Spain on the 11th - 13th March, hosted by the IEEC/CSIC. Attendance at
this workshop will be limited, registration is now open. See here for more details.
The aim of this workshop is to gather together young researchers and senior
experts from the COSMOCOMP nodes, to discuss recent advancements in the
field of modern cosmology, in an informal and lively environment.
The meeting is not restricted to COSMOCOMP fellows and coordinators, but the number of attendees will be limited to ~80 due to constraints in the logistics. All people interested in attending the meeting are invited to register (http://adlibitum.oats.inaf.it/meetings/COSMOCOMPTS/registration.html) before June 30th and indicate if they plan to give a talk. We encourage all COSMOCOMP fellows to present their work.
Marie Curie fellows are invited to the ESOF 2012 Marie Curie Actions event in Dublin on the 10th and 11th July 2012.
The Marie Curie Conference will offer fellows special opportunities to broaden their career perspectives and further exploit their potential as Marie Curie Fellows. The conference will include training sessions on how to access EC funding including presentations on Horizon 2020; patenting and how to write successful grant proposals. The main theme of the 2012 conference is communicating research and there will also be a series of workshops on the various aspects of communications including social media networking and speaking confidently to a non-scientific audience. Participants will also play an active role through poster sessions and short presentations on their research. More information can be found at here.
Unlike the previous CosmoComp workshops this workshop will focus on sparking off new projects using the data collected for the subhalofinder comparison project "Subhaloes going Notts". After an initial introduction of the participating subhalofinders and the existing data, everyone is encouraged to propose, join and work on various projects related to the wealth of data created for "Subhaloes going Notts".
The workshop is organised by the "Subhaloes going Notts" Team: Frazer Pearce, Alexander Knebe, Julian Onions, Stuart Muldrew, Hanni Lux and Steffen Knollmann. More details can be found on the workshop website here.
The third CosmoComp workshop was held at the Trieste Observatory from 14-16 March 2012, on the topic of Star Formation and Chemical Enrichment. It consisted of interactive lectures and group-activites.
The workshop was organised by Madhura Killedar, Till Sawala, Susana Planelles and Weiguang Cui. More information can be found here.
