posted May 27, 2017, 9:59 PM by Ji-hoon Kim

Dear AGORA Colleagues,

We are delighted to announce that the 6th AGORA Workshop will be held Aug. 11-13, 2017 at UC Santa Cruz.  



While the program is still open for your suggestion, we plan to design this year's Workshop to launch 2 science-oriented comparison.  It will also include a Collaboration-wide brainstorming session, and updates from other sub-projects. 

- More information about the Workshop:  sites.google.com/site/santacruzcomparisonproject/workshops/6th-workshop

- Latest progress report on planned papers:  sites.google.com/site/projectagoraworkspace/collaborative-documents/progress-report-12

We may provide travel support for a limited number of key Project participants.  If you wish to be considered for financial support, please contact Joel with expected itemized costs and your other source(s) of funding.  



Please fill out the registration form by July 7 (sites.google.com/site/santacruzcomparisonproject/reg) if you wish to attend the Workshop, in person or online.  Please do so even if you have already signed up for the annual Santa Cruz Galaxy Workshop, 7-11 August (hipacc.ucsc.edu/GalaxyWorkshop2017.html), so we can have an accurate head count for planning.  On Friday 11, the Galaxy Workshop and the AGORA Workshop will hold joint sessions on high-resolution galaxy simulations.

There will be a $50 registration fee to cover weekend breakfasts, lunches, and the dinner on Aug. 12 (Sat).  You will pay this fee when you register for the Santa Cruz Galaxy Workshop.  However, if you are coming *only* for the AGORA portion of the week, and not registering for the Galaxy Workshop, please let us know.  

Please forward this message to anyone potentially interested.  Thank you very much!  


Joel Primack, Piero Madau and Ji-hoon Kim on behalf of the Local Organizing Committee and the AGORA Steering Committee
