Friday the 15th
The Friday will be structured discussions of about
30min to 1h each. Sessions will start by 2/5 min
9h00-10h30 "SN cosmology"
: Jakob Nordin
How can we improve the use of SNe Ia
as empirical Standard candles?
When we claim to do "precision cosmology", how far
can we go with empirical corrections? How can we
convince ourselves and the community that there is no
hidden potentially significant systematic bias for
- What can we use SNe Ia for? (20min)
Intro Slides: Greg Aldering
- How do we disentangle intrinsic from extrinsic
reddening, and how to avoid systematic
Intro Slides: Rahman Amanhulla [slides]
- How well can we use environment (host) data to
measure and correct for potential SN brightness
redshift evolution? (20min)
Intro Slides: Mickael Rigault [slides]
- The SN opportunities in Future Surveys (20min)
11h00-12h30 "SN Typing and Modelling"
: Mark Sullivan
How many SNIa subtypes are there? Does this
matter? What purity is needed for photometric typing?
Can we get there? How important are the
direct identification of progenitors as confirmation?
What kind of very early data (type,
quantity, quality) are needed to accurately test viable
- How to separate SN types and SN Ia subtypes? (40min)
Intro Slides: Bob Nichol [no slides]
- Modelling Supernovae (50min)
Longer Intro Slides: Fritz Roepke [slides]
Follow-up Slides: Stefan Taubenberger [slides]
13h45-15h45 "SN project and funding"
: Marek Kowalski
Longer Intro Slides
: ESO Perspective, Bruno
Leibundgut (20min + Discussion) [slides
The European Cosmological impact, our to do list (45min)
Follow-up Slides: 4MOST, Reolof de Jong

16h00-17h30 "SN Calibration and anchoring"
: Pierre Antilogus
TO BE RESHAPED -- Is physical calibration required, and are current
suggested methods sufficient? How good can calibration
be from ground? Should we create a set of joint
photometry libraries? How do we determine which
method/methods to use for standardization? Can we build
a shared software effort?
- Photometric Calibration (45min)
Intro Slides: Nicolas Regnault
- The anchoring Sample: How many, with which Data? (45min)
Intro Slides: Manu Gangler
17h30-18h00 "SN and Computer"
: Mickael Rigault
Shared Software development Shared repository (30min)
: Kyle Barbary [slides
