Cosmic CARnage

This workshop is the successor to nIFTy Cosmology, held in Madrid during July 2014. The primary goal of the "Cosmic CARnage" workshop will be to compare and contrast a set of semi-analytic models of galaxy formation which have all been calibrated to the same observational datasets.

The workshop schedule is available here.

The workshop will be held at the Carnegie Observatories in Pasadena, California from July 20-24, 2015.
