The 8th NLTE Code Comparison Workshop
November 4-8 2013, Santa Fe, NM, USA
Advanced collisional-radiative (CR) models are extensively used in plasma
spectroscopy to analyze plasma kinetics and spectra produced far from local
thermodynamic equilibrium (LTE). Non-LTE atomic models also play a critical role
in radiation-hydrodynamic simulations used to help design plasma experiments. It
is therefore not surprising that verification and validation (V&V) of these
complex CR models are of significant interest. Since experimental benchmarks for
validation are extremely challenging, computational experiments and comparisons
are one of the primary tools for V&V of CR codes. The NLTE Workshops aim at
development of such tools and techniques.

Similar to the previous workshops, a necessary and sufficient condition
for participation would be to submit at least one calculated case. A detailed description of the cases and format requirements can be found in the
Call for Submissions (to be uploaded soon).
It would also be very helpful if you inform the organizers on your intention to participate in this Workshop.
Summary of cases
||5, 40, 80
||λ=10-14 Å, δλ=0.002 Å
||Trad=103 eV, dilution factor 0 and
plasma length: 0 and 1 cm
Total of 24 cases
||E=1200-3000 eV, δE=0.5 eV;
E=3000-17000 eV, δE=2 eV
|Analysis of experimental spectra from Z and
discussion of CR modeling strategies
||1200, 1800, 2200, 2400
||λ=40-70 Å, δλ=0.01 Å
||Magnetic confinement fusion
In addition to case analyses, we plan to have a few lectures and discussions on
various aspects of collisional-radiative modeling including, but not limited to,
effects of data quality and error propagation.

The Conference will be held at the Santa Fe Hotel
where a block of rooms at
discount rates are reserved. The hotel is located at:
1501 Paseo de Peralta
The negotiated rates are 83 USD (+tax) for the
workshop duration ±3 days. The reservations are to be made directly with
the hotel reservation department:
Santa Fe, NM 87501

The hotel offers complimentary shuttle service to and from the
Santa Fe Airport.
We will have an Internet connection at the hotel and a dedicated wireless
network for the Workshop purposes.
We are considering organization of an astronomy party on one of the evenings.
