PHAROS workshop: Online repository for the equation of state and transport properties of neutron stars (WG1+WG2)

PHAROS workshop: Online repository for the equation of state and transport properties of neutron stars (WG1+WG2)

PHAROS WG1+WG2 workshop: "Online repository for the equation of state and transport properties of neutron stars"
February 24-26, 2021
Institute of Space Sciences in Barcelona (if possible) and in any case virtually through Zoom

The focus of the workshop is to discuss and set up a framework for an upgraded and extended online repository for EoS models and associated transport properties. 

The repository will be based on the CompOSE catalogue and with an easily readable format, standardized over different communities, ready to use in simulations and interpretation of new data. The workshop aims at defining specific tasks and potential teams to undertake them.

We encourage everyone with an interest in using or/and contributing to such a repository to register on the website of the event. Registered participants will promptly receive updated information on the event and will be able to edit their registration preferences at any time. News on the event will also be posted on the workshop website. 

The format of the meeting comprises morning and afternoon sessions, each featuring mostly invited focused talks and a few contributed talks followed by discussion focused on the needs of the modeling community, the open questions related to CompOSE and the associated deliverables of PHAROS.

Topics will include: 
**  Expansion of the EoS database, increasing the contributors of such data 
**  Identify and include transport properties relevant to NS, BNS and CCSN modelling
**  Improve data format and available tools depending on community needs

Given the current COVID-19 situation, a face-to-face meeting cannot be guaranteed. If conditions will not allow it, the meeting will take place in a virtual form. Even if a face-to-face meeting will be organized, remote attendance will be accommodated.
