Join co-organizers Daniel Anglés-Alcázar and Romeel Davé in the first annual SIMBA Collaboration Workshop held at the Flatiron Institute in New York City on February 18th – 20th, 2020.
The SIMBA large volume cosmological simulations represent a significant step forward in modeling statistical populations of galaxies with state-of-the-art hydrodynamics and realistic sub-grid baryonic physics based on higher resolution calculations. The goal of the workshop is to discuss ongoing work with the SIMBA simulations, coordinate existing projects, and make plans for future work. We would like to promote the exchange of ideas, tools, and knowledge between subgroups working on different aspects of galaxy formation and cosmology. We anticipate that the 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), Flatiron Institute, which is hosting the workshop. Workshop participants are welcome to stay at the CCA on Friday February 21st for free collaboration time.
Further information regarding the workshop program and logistics will follow soon. Meanwhile, please feel free to send us any questions regarding the workshop.
