Overview & Motivation

The N-Body Shop Excellence (NBSE) Virtual Conference is an invited collaboration conference focusing on the work done by N-Body Shop Members. It will highlight the ongoing scientific work of individual members and subgroups within the collaboration, as well as including discussions of ongoing work in improving the atmosphere of our collaboration overall, such as the creation and development of the code of conduct. The scientific focus of the conference includes, but is not limited to, theoretical work using numerical solvers developed by the N-Body Shop - ChaNGa and Gasoline - and including work on scales from planetary disks to clusters of galaxies.

Conference-related discussions are encouraged to use the hashtags #NBSEC21 and #NBodyShopExcellence.
