Dear all,

I would like to advertise the Co-Design Summer School which will take 
place at Los Alamos, NM next summer, sometimes from mid-May to 
mid-September 2016 (exact dates TBD).

The Los Alamos ISTI/ASC Co-Design Summer School will bring together top 
graduate students in the fields of physics, computational science and 
mathematics. A team of six participants will work together on solving a 
problem that is designed to build the skills needed to tackle the grand 
challenges of the future. Foremost among the skills on which we focus is 
the ability of students to work across disciplines with other team 
members, while employing their own unique expertise. This is the heart 
of Co-Design.

The scientific challenge of choice for this year is modeling neutron 
star mergers and their kilonovae -- supernova-like transients that 
accompany these dramatic cosmic cataclisms.

Please consult the following website for more information about the 
school, the challenge and how to apply:

Graduate students in the fields of astrophysics, computational code 
design and mathematics of general relativity are encouraged to apply. 
Application deadline is February 2016.

Please share with anyone who might be interested.
Best regards,

  - Oleg Korobkin
