This is to announce the 2016 Great Lakes Cosmology and Galaxies workshop to be held at McMaster University, Ontario, June 19-22. The workshop will mark the 11th Great Lakes Cosmology Meeting and the first time the meeting has been held in Canada. Please forward this message to your group members and colleagues, particularly in the US Great Lakes region.
The meeting will begin with a half-day Python in Astro workshop Sunday, June 19th and 3 days of talks will follow. A key goal is to provide opportunities for junior researchers (graduate students and postdocs) to give talks and network. Sessions will also include talks by senior researchers. We aim to keep the meeting affordable with a nominal registration fee and on campus accommodation available. Travel support is available for graduate students coming longer distances.
Simon White (MPA, Garching) will deliver an Origins public talk on Tuesday evening, June 21st, entitled:
“All from Nothing: the structuring of our Universe”.
We strongly encourage you to register and indicate your interest in giving a talk or a poster ASAP. The registration fee will be due after talk selection.
A broad list of topics is listed on the site. We also welcome suggestions with respect to the program and other enquiries at:
