Weak Lensing Magnification: Simulations and Measurements Workshop

This workshop will take place on November 4-8, 2013 in Barcelona, organized by the Institute for Space Science (IEEC/CSIC) in Barcelona with funding from the CosmoComp Marie Curie ITN.

During the workshop we plan to discuss various aspects of weak lensing magnification, for example measurements in data and simulations, different measurement techniques and their uncertainties, including magnification effects in simulations, forecasts for upcoming surveys, and synergy with other methods such as galaxy clustering and weak lensing shear.

We would like to invite you to participate. Limited funding may be available, upon request, to help with travel and hotel costs. There is no registration fee but attendance is limited to 40 people, so please register ASAP!

More information is avaialbel on Our website, here

Sussing Merger Trees

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.

Marie Curie Actions at ESOF2012

Marie Curie Logo 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.

Subhaloes Going Notts, Nottingham

Subhaloes Poster 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.
