cosmosis / CosmoSIS May 2014 Agenda


We are delighted that this meeting brings together such an enthusiastic group of scientists, and as a result we want to keep scheduled talks to a minimum, so we can all learn by doing, and so we can all shape the agenda according to the interests of the participants. The talks on the first morning will be a brief overview of the system, and in the afternoon we propose to quickly move to active coding sessions with the past-cosmosis developers in the room (we hope by the end of the meeting all the participants will be cosmosis developers!). The second morning will be in "unconference" format, where participants propose topics for small group discussion/talks/working, in real time. Finally we would like to finish the workshop by bringing together some of the work that was started and making a plan for how to keep helping each other to get more out of cosmosis. So do bring along your ideas for tools you would like to use, we're hoping you'll find cosmosis useful for writing your next (or current!) paper.
