15. Richard Hanson Max-Planck-Institute for Astronomy (MPIA), Heidelberg I am a new PhD student at MPIA and am working on extinction modelling within the Bayesian framework and detection of star clusters in the Milky Way. In the long run I would like to use Gaia data to fully test the derived methods and models to reconstruct an accurate extinction map of the Galaxy. This in turn will be used to devise and feed machine learning methods to find open star clusters. Therefore having access to mock catalogues will allow me to test and train the algorithms in great detail. x x x x
16. Alex Buedenbender Max Planck Institute, Heidelberg I am mainly interested in stellar dynamics and the dark matter distribution within the Milky Way. This requires a precise knowledge of the motion of stars in the 6D phase space and the determination of the galactic gravitational potential. With the help of the Gaia Mock Catalogue I would, together with Glenn van de Ven, test our dynamical models, especially the Schwarzschild method, in the question of how precisely we will be able to constrain the total, including dark matter, distribution as well as stellar phase-space density, within a radius of 2-3 kpc around the Sun. x x x x
