A workshop dedicated to the Theoretical Virtual Observatory will take place at IAP on April 5-6th.
The goal is to bring together experts of the Virtual Observatory and theoreticians who would like to make results of their simulations (e.g. databases or catalogs) or numerical codes available to the worldwild astronomical community.
We would like to invite you to a two-day workshop, december 1-2 2005, devoted to the modellisation of physical processes at work during galaxy formation and their impact on the intergalactic medium. We aim to bring together about 20 students/researchers from the different EARA nodes with expertise in both numerical (hydrodynamical simulations or/and semi analytic models coupled to dark matter simulations) and observational aspects of the subject. The workshop will focus more on the validity of different recipes (rather than the actual algorithms) used to implement physical processes such as star formation, galactic winds, production of metals, inhomogeneous ionization of the intergalactic medium, radiative transfer, etc.
