From 9 to 10 July
Workshop on Frontiers in Gravitation, Astrophysics, and Cosmology (ICNFP 2018)
The purpose of this workshop is to discuss and share new developments, experimental and theoretical, in Gravitation, Astrophysics, and Cosmology.
It is part of the International Conference on New Frontiers in Physics, which aims to promote scientific exchange and development of novel ideas in science with a particular accent in interdisciplinarity. The conference will bring together worldwide experts and promising young scientists working on experimental and theoretical aspects of particle, nuclear, heavy ion and astroparticle physics and cosmology, with colleagues from other disciplines, for example solid state physics, mathematics, mathematical physics, quantum optics and other.The conference will be hosted in the Conference Center of the Orthodox Academy of Creta (OAC), an exceptionally beautiful location only a few meters from the mediteranean sea.

From 21 to 28 July
L’Agape: SELFORGANISED SUMMERSCHOOL FOR THEORETICAL PHYSICS
Mézeyrac (Auvergne, France)
Mézeyrac (France)Young physicists, mathematicians and philosophers shall meet for a crazy oneweek expedition lost between earth and sky at the boundary of the thinkable world. The goal of this summerschool is to share deep discussions about physics and its foundations in an open and creative way for an intense time of learning, reflection and enlightenment – and all in a joyful atmosphere. With up to 17 commensals, this year’s instalment of l’agape will see a partition between more indepth courses given in the mornings and radical, open and creative activities in the afternoons.

From 2 to 8 September
IESC Preschool, Analytics, Inference, and Computation in Cosmology: Advanced methods
Cargèse
Institut d’Etudes Scientifiques de Cargèse (Corse), FranceThis is an introductory school to a thematic trimester that will held at the IHP in Paris. It is organized by the Institut Henri Poincaré (IHP) in collaboration with the Institut d’Études Scientifiques de Cargèse (IESC). The themes which are addressed are part of Mathematical Frontiers in Cosmology.
Cosmology is about understanding the origin and evolution of the universe and the formation of all structure within it — one of the most challenging intellectual projects undertaken by humanity. To make progress, we need the most powerful mathematical methods available: analytics to guide us through subtle theoretical issues, simulations to compute the detailed quantitative predictions of the theory, and statistical inference to confront these predictions with large cosmological data sets.
The IHP trimester entitled “Analytics, Inference, and Computation in Cosmology,” will be dedicated not only to the “what” and the “why” but also, and specifically, to the “how” of cosmological calculation. Is the mathematical toolset of cosmology adequate for the challenges ahead? Where do we need new ideas?
Whether it be on advances in analytical techniques, innovative computational methods or new ways to infer cosmological information from cosmological data, this trimester will be an occasion to gather the leading experts from around the world to share their expertise, spark new ideas and collaborations, and equip the next generation of cosmologists with the innovative mathematical tools we need as we enter a new era in precision cosmology.
