In whatever form we are going to this, I am pretty sure my grant will not
have money for travel. If you know of any source for money that I can get
some from it will be more than welcome. If the meeting is in NYC, it's
very cheap for me (I can get there for $17 by bus, so it's only the stay).
CA or CO would make it quite a bit more pricy for me. In Europe, there are
some very specific numerical astrophysics funds, but I don't know of any
in the US....
On the practical side: I have been looking into using yt, but I think the
learning curve is steep-ish for new users (especially if they are not
familiar to Python either...). I think I will not be 'motivated' enough to
dive deep in, unless there are a couple of days devoted to this.

>Hi Marcel, Casey, Chris,

>(at which one could find several yt developers.) I've heard rumors of

>> 3. How many people would be interested, and how many could come?
>> 4. Funding sources?
>> We were tentatively considering piggy-backing the Enzo conference, but
