Location:  Waterloo, ON, Canada

This is the first circular, please note further info (webpage, deadlines, SOC, etc) will be sent in the near future.

The workshop will be held at the Perimeter Institute for Theoretical Physics, Waterloo ON, Canada on June 20 – 25 2011, and will bring together leading and younger researchers in the field of numerical modeling and microscopic physics of matter and radiation at high densities where effects of general relativity play a central role.

The topics covered will include improved microscopic physics inputs (neutrino-matter interactions, equations of state, thermonuclear reaction rates) and computational methods (GRMHD, radiation transport, reaction networks) with an emphasis on approaches that allow for efficient implementation of the improvements in multi-D simulations of relativistic astrophysical systems.
