A virtual meeting covering all aspects

of computational astrophysics

The meeting is a follow up to the meeting held in 2019 in St-Petersburg, and a bridge to Symposium 362 which will take place in 2021 in Chamonix, France.

  1. *The meeting is open to everyone but registration is required ;

  2. *All presentations will be live ;

  3. *Presentations will be recorded if agreed by the speakers.

Topic covered include

  1. Strong gravity: accretion disks, jets, BH- & NS binaries, gravitational waves (pair creation & diffusion, SED and transport, post-Newtonian & GR solvers, wave-front and signal analysis, …).

  2. Large-scale structure, galaxy formation & evolution (gravitational dynamics and HPC, radiation field and feedback, adaptive grids, hydro- and MHD, stellar population synthesis, .. ).

  3. Star formation and the interstellar medium (the warm- to cold ISM, chemical networks and reactions rates, disk structure and gas flows, MHD and recombination, circumstellar discs: heating, structure, .. ).

  4. Stellar evolution, including supernovae and common-envelope binaries (angular momentum transport, 3D modeling of convection, contact binaries and mass transfer, nuclear reactions for supermassive stars, computing SEDs .. ).

  5. Solar and exo-planet systems (host stars and solar physics, star-exoplanet interaction, planetary atmospheres, planet formation, protoplanetary discs, resonances and migration, structure and stellar SEDs, secular evolution, perturbed Hamiltonian systems, .. ).

  6. New computational tools and data mining (HPC and computer architecture, scripting and optimization, Bayesian inference and Big Data, non parametric fits of spectra, automated quality control/validation, inversion methods ..).
