Toronto Meeting on Numerical Integration Methods in Planetary Science

August 14th to 16th 2017


The Toronto Meeting on Numerical Integration Methods in Planetary Science is a three day meeting to discuss the current state, recent advances, and unsolved problems related to numerical integrations of planetary systems in general, symplectic integrators, hardware acceleration and software tools. The idea is to have a relatively small workshop-style meeting of about 20-30 people who are actively working in this field, allowing us to have talks and discussions at a level of detail which is usually not possible at larger conferences.


If you are interested in attending, please e-mail Hanno Rein or Daniel Tamayo. There is no registration fee for this conference and we might have limited support for travel or lodging.
