UV CoCoNuT Meeting 2015
University of Málaga (Málaga, Spain), November 18-20, 2015

CoCoNuT Code

CoCoNuT Meeting 2015


The CoCoNuT code is a general relativistic hydrodynamics code with dynamical spacetime evolution. The aim of this numerical code is the study of several astrophysical scenarios in which general relativity can play an important role, namely the collapse of rapidly rotating stellar cores and the evolution of isolated neutron stars.

The emphasis of the meeting this year shall be put on High Performance Computing. Recent progress and future developments of this field and of the CoCoNuT code shall be discussed, but not exclusively. Possible topics of the meeting are:

  • High performance computing
  • Numerical methods
  • GPUs
  • Computational astrophysics

toghether with the usual suspects:

  • Hydrodynamics
  • Radiation transport
  • Strong gravity
  • Microphysics

The purpose of the CoCoNuT meeting is twofold: on the one hand it is intended as a regular (yearly so far) meeting of the CoCoNuT users, but it also serves as an opportunity to interchange ideas with users of similar numerical codes. Therefore the attendance to the meeting of anyone outside the CoCoNuT community is welcome.

Invited speakers:

  • Michael Dumbser, University of Trento (Italy)
  • José Ma Gallardo, EDANYA, University of Málaga (Spain)
  • Roger Käppeli, ETH Zurich (Switzerland)
  • Rafael Asenjo, Dept. Computer Architecture, Uiversity of Málaga (Spain)
Conference venue:

The meeting will take place at the University of Málaga, in Málaga, Spain, from November 18 to 20, 2015.
