Welcome to Project AGORA!  We investigate galaxy formation with high-resolution simulations and compare the results across code platforms and with observations.  This is an one-of-a-kind, inter-institutional effort by more than 140 participants from over 60 institutions worldwide (as of Oct. 2016).  We welcome anybody who is interested in participating in the Project.  Click the image on the right to see an one-slide intro to the Project.  For the consensus reached during the first Workshop and the working groups formed, visit here
