Date and place: November 9 & 10, 2016 - Jussieu Campus, Institut des NanoSciences de Paris (INSP).

 M. Drouin

This 2-day workshop achieved its main goals and met a great success with more than sixty participants!
PLAS@PAR scientists, PhD students & invited attended the workshop. The event was ponctuated by conferences, poster sessions, workshop discussions & a friendly cocktail (the full program is available here).

The PHARE project aims at developing a massively-parallel AMR hybrid-PIC code for astrophysical and laboratory plasma applications.

The PHARE kick-off meeting was the occasion to find out about recent progress in numerical methods related to Particle-In-Cell and hybrid-PIC codes and about the current status of the PHARE project and its future developments. We also had the opportunity to evaluate potential ways of collaborating with industrial partners specialized in code optimization and to debate some new ideas.
