Computational Astrophysics at NAM 2019

Abstract submission for NumAst parallel session open until 15th March

The Royal Astronomical Society is proud to present the National Astronomy Meeting, to be held at Lancaster University, Sunday 30th June – Saturday 4th July.

NAM2019 will bring together hundreds of delegates from the UK astronomy community and will feature a wide-ranging scientific programme in parallel with exciting outreach and cultural events. 

We invite you to submit contributions to the Current Developments in Numerical Astrophysics (NumAst) session at NAM 2019 ( ), at Lancaster University Sunday 30th June – Saturday 4th July.

This session is focused on the development, testing and implementation of numerical schemes currently used in astrophysics, including but not limited to methods for I) smoothed particle hydrodynamics, II) grid-based hydrodynamics and III) mesh free hydrodynamics. Although we differentiate between these three approaches based on pure hydrodynamics, we also invite contributions concerning magnetic fields, gravity, self-gravity, particles, PDFs, radiation transport and statistics. We particularly encourage submissions from early career researchers and graduate students, presenting latest developments to mature codes, or presenting new codes and the associated validations, or seeking guidance to overcome development issues.
