Mind the Gap: from microphysics to large-scale structure in the Universe

Conference rationale is to bring together scientific communities working on theory and numerical simulations on small scales: star formation, (MHD) turbulence, radiative and accretion processes to talk to researchers working on large scale cosmological simulations. The aim is to share theoretical and numerical expertise to further interaction between these scientific communities; discuss the modelling of feedback processes on different scales with the following scopes:

  • pin down what are the most crucial physical processes at each scale for different systems
  • find novel ways to incorporate these processes by learning from small and large scale simulations both in terms of numerical techniques and of more realistic physical modelling (e.g. improved effective/sub-grid models for the scales beyond the dynamical range)
