General Information

The purpose of this workshop is to get an overall picture of the different numerical schemes and codes used in the field of planet-disc interactions. Since the publication a decade ago of de Val-Borro et al. (2006), the problematics of planet-disc interactions have significantly evolved and new generations of schemes and techniques have emerged.

One of the objectives of this workshop would be to encourage a new code comparison project, which could include topics such as three-dimensional and small-scale aspects of the flow, gap opening, and others that may be suggested during the workshop.

The workshop will be held over the period Nov 20-24, 2017, in CIC , just across the street from the Institute of Physical Sciences of UNAM, in Cuernavaca (about 70 km south of Mexico City). Facilities at CIC include a large number of offices (enough so that each participant can have her/his own office) and two seminar rooms. The format of the meeting will consist in informal talks during the morning, and work or brainstorming sessions in the afternoons.

Lodging

Two inexpensive options for lodging that are available include: the Posada Tlaltenango (~50 EUR – 60 USD/night, breakfast included), which is a small hotel about 5 km away from CIC (15 min drive), or a guesthouse which is often used by organizers of gathering events at the CIC, 3 km away from the CIC. The price needs to be confirmed but should not exceed that of Posada Tlaltenango. A night at the guesthouse includes dinner and breakfast.

Many other options are available, such as:

You can also make your own plans if you prefer. Note that Uber operates in Cuernavaca, so moving around is relatively easy.

 

Travel

The nearest and most convenient airport is the International Airport of Mexico City (MEX). From there, you can take an Uber car (the ride is about 50 EUR-60 USD, and takes 1h30 – 2h). For your arrival, this is the simplest option. This page will be updated in due time to provide accurate destination information for the Posada Tlaltenango, the guesthouse or any other destination chosen by the participants. Those who have already come to Cuernavaca, or are fluent Spanish speakers, may also consider the option of taking a bus (Pullman de Morelos) from the airport to Cuernavaca (the one-way ticket is about 10 EUR-12 USD), and then a cab. For your departure, you will get help from the LOC to go to the airport on a direct bus.

 

Note that limited funds are available for travel support or for local expenses. Please do not hesitate to contact us.
