Workshop on Computational Solar and Astrophysics Modelling

This five-day summer school takes place from 14-18 September and will introduce young researchers (advanced masters students, PhDs and junior postdoctoral researchers) to modern open-source numerical astrophysics models with a heavy emphasis on hands-on tutorial sessions. After introductory morning lectures, participants will work with three different open-source software packages, AMRVAC, iPIC3D and SWIFT, applying these to typical solar and astrophysical situations, ranging from the heliosphere to cosmological phenomena on the Jülich supercomputer systems. The school is open to a maximum of 28 participants, and is supported by a Belgian Belspo-funded Interuniversity Attraction Pole, CHARM (, connecting the heliospheric and astrophysical communities.
