We are organising a School+Workshop at IUCAA, Pune during 1-12 February 2016, with the theme “Large Scale Structure: From Galaxies to the Cosmic Web”.
The School (meant for advanced PhD students and postdocs) will be during 1−8 Feb, with the idea of exposing the participants to a holistic picture of structure formation through topics such the growth of cosmological large scale structure and the cosmic web, galaxy formation and evolution, physics of the inter-galactic medium and the connection between large scale structure and galaxy evolution, along with an introduction to observational probes, large volume surveys, etc. This will be followed by a more advanced Workshop during 9−12 Feb focusing on the latest developments in these fields, particularly in the context of upcoming instruments such as Euclid, the SKA, TMT etc.
This event is being organised as an `Outside Activity’ of ICTP (Trieste) and is co-sponsored by IUCAA and NCRA (Pune). The last date for registration is September 20, 2015. Further information regarding contact details, registration procedure, etc. can be found at www.iucaa.ernet.in/~lss .
The number of participants will be limited to about 40 for the School and about 60 for the Workshop.
