The IFT PhD school on Cosmology Tools, Madrid 13-17, 2017

Post by Savvas Nesseris » October 25 2016

Dear all,

It is a pleasure to announce the PhD school on Cosmology Tools that will take place at the Institute of Theoretical Physics (IFT) in Madrid during the week 13-17 March 2017. In this school several renowned experts on the use of cosmology codes will teach the students how to compile, run and modify several codes (see below), answer technical questions and provide feedback on their problems. Also, the school will provide ample time and opportunities for interaction between the students and the more senior people, thus fostering international collaborations and potentially leading to exciting new projects.

Details about the school and the registration can be found here:

Cosmological MonteCarlo (CosmoMC).
Code for Anisotropies in the Microwave Background (CAMB).
Effective Field Theory with CAMB (EFTCAMB).
Hierarchical Equal Area isoLatitude Pixelization of a sphere (HEALPix).
A code to calculate the recombination history of the Universe (Recfast).
Fast computation of SZ Signals (SZpack).
Cosmological Thermalization Project (CosmoTherm).
Cosmological recombination (CosmoRec).
The Cosmic Linear Anisotropy Solving System (Class).
Horndeski in the Cosmic Linear Anisotropy Solving System (Hi-Class).
Monte Carlo code for Cosmological Parameter extraction (MontePython).
Cosmological parameter estimation tool (CosmoSIS).
Cosmological N-body/SPH simulations (Gadget 2), (gevolution), (RAMSES).

Due to limited space and resources there will be only 25 positions. The registration is now open and will remain open until either the end of December or all spots are filled in a first come-first served basis, with the accepted MSc/PhD students being notified at the latest around early January 2017. There will be no registration fee, but unfortunately no financial support for the students either.

To be accepted, the students will need to have a demonstrated ability to code (shell, Fortran, C etc) and basic knowledge of cosmology. In some cases, reference letters from their advisor may be requested.

Best regards,
