Brief description Australia is renowned for its significant contribution to great progress in observational studies of the Large and the Small Magellanic Clouds. The proposed state-of-the-art computer simulations will provide new and better understanding of the Magellanic Clouds and thus stimulate public interest, in particular, the next generation of Australian scientists. The extensive comparison between results from fastest computers and world-class telescopes will make important breakthroughs in the areas of computational astrophysics and extragalactic astronomy and thus inspire many scientists and engineers in other fields.
