GALPROP Workshop 2011

Original Announcement:

Dear Colleagues,

We are pleased to invite you to the GALPROP workshop to be run at Stanford University on December 5-6, 2011. The aim of the workshop is to discuss future developments of the code, optimizations, tests, formats, along with related astrophysical data and theory and presentations of GALPROP applications as well as other related issues. The program for the workshop is very flexible and will be finalized closer to the date.

Yours Sincerely,

The Organizing Committee
Igor Moskalenko (HEPL/Stanford)
Troy Porter (HEPL/Stanford)
Seth Digel (SLAC)

Local Information:
The meeting venue is room 102 on the ground floor of the Hansen Experimental Physics Laboratory (HEPL) at Stanford University. Directions can be found using the online Stanford campus map and typing `Physics and Astrophysics' into the search box. Click here for a close up of the location of HEPL obtained using this service.

For those participants staying at the SLAC guesthouse, there is a free shuttle service to and from campus via the Marguerite buses. The schedule is linked here. The shuttle frequency is approximately 20 minutes with a convenient pickup/drop-off in front of the SLAC guesthouse. The most convenient stops on campus to get to HEPL are the Gates building and Lagunita Court (please refer to the online map for directions from each of these). Walking time to HEPL from either stop is approximately 2-3 minutes.

Coffee, tea, and snacks will be provided mid-morning and early afternoon both days (there is no charge for the meeting). Lunch is at your own expense with convenient eateries on campus. There are many restaurants nearby in Palo Alto for dinner.
