CAMELS Workshop

Date & Time


Location

Flatiron Institute, 162 Fifth Avenue

The Cosmology and Astrophysics with MachinE Learning Simulations (CAMELS) project aims to overcome major obstacles limiting our understanding of the fundamental properties of the Universe by (1) providing theoretical predictions for an arbitrary number of observables as a function of cosmology and astrophysics from the largest suite of state-of-the-art cosmological galaxy formation simulations; and (2) developing novel machine learning algorithms to maximize the extraction of information from cosmological surveys while marginalizing over uncertainties in astrophysical effects.

Following the presentation of numerous results and a major public data release, it is the ideal time for the CAMELS community to get together in person in New York City. The goal of the CAMELS workshop is to discuss ongoing work, coordinate existing and new projects, and make plans for future work and new simulations. We would like to promote new collaborations and the exchange of ideas, tools and knowledge between CAMELS subgroups working on different aspects of galaxy formation, cosmology and machine learning. This workshop will include a mix of talks and ample discussion time, along with breakout sessions for more in-depth collaborations.

Please register for the workshop and indicate your planned dates of attendance and any dietary restrictions. There is no workshop registration fee and breakfast/lunch/breaks are generously provided by the Center for Computational Astrophysics (CCA), the Flatiron Institute and the Simons Foundation, which are hosting the workshop. Workshop participants are welcome to arrive earlier the same week for unstructured collaboration time and interaction with CCA members and other CAMELS Workshop participants.

Further information regarding the workshop program and logistics will follow soon. Meanwhile, please feel free to send us any questions regarding the workshop.
