Einstein Toolkit EU School and Workshop, Trento, Italy (1st announcement)

Dear Colleagues,
we would like to announce an Einstein Toolkit School and Workshop taking place at the University of Trento in Italy, from June 13th to 17th (2016).

After the successful workshop we had in Stockholm last summer, we decided to continue with the idea of hosting in Europe a meeting of Einstein Toolkit users and developers once per year. This time we will have a three-day long school, useful for new users and people that are interested in learning more about the toolkit. The school will then be followed by a two-day workshop opened not only to Einstein Toolkit developers, but also to anyone interested in numerical relativity and computational astrophysics.

The school aim is to introduce students and postdocs to the Einstein Toolkit and in particular to its general relativistic magnetohydrodynamic (GRMHD) code GRHydro. Eight practitioners from several institutions around the world will teach the students how to install the code, how to run some simple neutron star simulations, how to extract gravitational wave signals, and how to visualize the results of simulations.

We hope you will attend this meeting and circulate this information among your collaborators and students. In the following weeks we will also setup a web page and provide more information.

Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any question.
