Connection details

Parallels 5 and 6, Session D. Wednesday April 1, 11:30 AM to 1:30 PM pacific.

Monitor: Ben

Scribe: Brandon


  • Presentation / discussion of new developments in simulation techniques, codes, since the last meeting.
  • Identify the other working groups with science cases relying on Galactic foreground modeling (low-ell / BB, extragalactic foregrounds, etc)
    • What are the conclusions of the previous data challenges for these groups, in what direction does the foreground modeling require more complexity.
  • Are we prepared to provide the simulations that will be required to answer outstanding science questions for CD1.
    • What trade off studies are being looked at, will these require new foreground modeling efforts?
    • Are existing simulations sufficient for the next data challenge?



  • Neural Net Models, Dust (Ben, 15)
  • Neural Net Models, Synchrotron (Giuseppe, 15)
