January 2008 is going to be quite exciting in Galway since there are two quite relevant meetings happening here.
High Temperature Astrochemistry
A meeting of the Astrophysical Chemistry Group of the Royal Society of Chemistry and Royal Astronomical Society will be hosted by the Centre for Astronomy, National University of Ireland Galway, Monday 7th and Tuesday 8th January, 2008 Further information is available from the meeting website at: http://www.astrochemistry.org.uk/galway_meeting.htm
The 5th JETSET school on ‘High performance computing in Astrophysics
The School will address the methods used to simulate astrophysical jets and to derive useful information from large datasets, focusing on techniques involving high performance computing.
Further information is available from the school website at: http://www.dias.ie/jetsetschool/
I’m going to participate in both of them since they address some of the issues of my current project here in Galway. The other important aspect of these meeting is that they both are going to be hosted by Centre for Astronomy at NUIG!
