nIFTy Cosmology:

numerical  simulations for large surveys


Please note that the format of the program for all three weeks follows the spirit of our previous meetings and hence there will be no scientific talks scheduled. The prime objective is to work on the data provided and generated during the week(s), respectively. Results will be discussed and written up in the form of peer-reviewed publications already during the workshop!
