The 2018 Rayleigh Workshop will be held at the University of Colorado following GTP 2018. Rayleigh is designed for the study of MHD turbulence and convection in spherical (and soon Cartesian) geometries using a pseudo-spectral approach and runs efficiently on O(10^5) cores. The software is freely available and may be downloaded from its CIG software page [download].
The workshop consists of TWO SEPARATE EVENTS:
I. TUTORIAL: 15 September 2018.
The Introduction to Rayleigh Workshop will introduce new users to running the Rayleigh code.
Limit: 25 participants.
II. DEVELOPMENT WORKSHOP: 16-19 September 2018.
The Rayleigh Development Workshop will:
Limit: 20 participants
You can apply to attend one or both events.

Tutorial: Saturday, 15 September 2018 - ALL DAY
Development Workshop: Sunday-Wednesday, 16-19 September 2018
The Development Workshop begins informally on Sunday morning with an optional hike. Participants are invited to gather in the evening for informal discussions on objectives.
