Workshop

Astroparticle and Cosmology

Aug 28, 2006 - Nov 11, 2006



Abstract
"Astroparticle" is one of the fastest growing fields of modern physics. Current and forthcoming astroparticle experiments are expected to challenge some of the basic pillars of our current understanding of fundamental physics. The aim of the workshop is to gather together key worldwide researchers (theorists and observers) to collaborate on the main problems of cosmology and astroparticle physics, and at the same time, to offer a training opportunity for young researchers.

Topics
1. Models for the Early Universe
2. Dark Matter and Dark Energy
3. CMB, Large Scale Structure, Cosmological Parameters


Organizers
(C. Baccigalupi, K. Enqvist, E. Kolb, J. Lesgourgues)
