Latinamerican Chinese European Galaxy Formation Network​ 

2017 - 2021

LACEGAL training event

Hands-on workshops

The goal of Mock Innsbruck is to bring together leading researchers in computational studies of galaxy formation and cosmology and key representatives from current and future surveys to promote discussions and collaborations.  The main focus of Mock Innsbruck will be on the galaxy-halo connection.

The goal of this workshop is to bring together leading researchers in Cosmology, modified gravity and galaxy formation studies to promote discussions and collaborations on how to produce realistic and useful mock galaxy catalogues needed to design probes for cosmology and gravity to be used on future (and current) surveys.  To maintain the number of people to a reasonable size to foster dialog this workshop is by invitation only.

  • Glenfiddling Galaxy Clusters, June 4-8, 2018 in Edinburgh,UK

This workshop forms part of the series nIFTy Cosmology 2014, Perth Galaxy Clusters 2015, CompaCT Clusters 2016, and Crystal Clear Clusters 2017, and aims at making use of our “The Three Hundred” sample of simulated galaxy clusters, i.e. zoom simulations of spherical regions of radius ~ 6Mpc/h in the MDPL2 simulation run with several simulation codes (GADGET2, GADGET3X, GADGET-PESPH, GIZMO, RAMSES) each featuring a full physics implementations.

Focus on "work" rather than "talks"  You will be working with full physics hydrodynamical simulations and various semi-analytical galaxy formation models, all based on the same underlying cosmological simulation. Alexander Knebe has kindly provided a report.

WHO is involved


All Lacegal nodes and contacts in Latin America, China and Europe

WHAT is it all about

The LACEGAL network brings together internationally recognised experts in the theory of galaxy formation and the modelling of the growth of cosmic structure. The network will allow new research collaborations to be made between the main groups working in the subject in Latin America and China, and the principal centres in computational galaxy formation and astrophysics in Europe.

Previous network 

The Horizon 2020 RISE LACEGAL is LACEGAL-II. 

LACEGAL-I was an MSCA IRSES network funded by the EU under Framework Program 7 (PIRSES-GA-2010-269264). LACEGAL-I  supported exchanges by 136 researchers for a total period of 216 months, delivering a successful program of high impact research and produced 38 papers.
