We are pleased to announce the first TCAN "Advancing Computational Methods to Understand the Dynamics of Ejection, Accretion, Winds and Jets in Neutron Star Mergers" Collaboration workshop. The workshop to be held at the Rochester Institute of Technology on June 19 through June 21, and it will provide an opportunity for all TCAN researchers and students to discuss face-to-face the collaboration projects, and discuss future developments.

The workshop will be overlapping with the 2019 North American Workshop on its first day with the purpose of exposing the broader community to our projects overall scientific goals.

Our program is available here.
