The Cosmic Web in the Local Universe

27th January 2020   -   31st January 2020
Leiden, Netherlands;=Oort


How unique is our local cosmic neighbourhood ? Can we describe the local cosmic landscape and compare it to regions further afield? How has our cosmic environment affected the growth of our Galaxy, and other galaxies in the cosmic vicinity. The purpose of the meeting to gauge the status quo from experts in observations, theory and analysis of what the local cosmic web looks like and how it has affected the formation of galaxies within it; and to identify the main hurdles as well as promising avenues for advancing the field. To this end, the workshop focusses on the characterization and accurate quantification of the cosmic structure in the local universe and numerical algorithms that are capable of reconstructing – via constrained initial conditions and numerical simulation - the structure in the Local Universe.
