Colloquiums, Schools, and Workshops to come

  • From 14 to 19 May

    Hot Topics in Modern Cosmology


    Spontaneous workshop XII
    co-organisé par R. Triay (CPT)

    Spontaneous Workshop (SW) brings together specialists on recent insights in Particle Physics, Astrophysics and Cosmology. The aim is to stimulate debate on common topics in views of providing us with innovating ideas on emerging problems. The workshop’s organization is based on an optimal number of concise presentations and with enough space for discussions in order to favour interactions among participants. Postdocs and PhD students are encouraged to attend.

  • From 28 to 31 May

    38, rue Frédéric Joliot-Curie
    13388 Marseille, France

    From Inhomogeneous gravity to cosmological back-reaction: Theoretical opportunity? Observational evidence?, co-organized by Thomas Schucker (CPT)

    CosmoBack is the opportunity to bring together two communities who rarely meet: theoretical cosmologists who actively work on inhomogeneous models and general relativity, possibly open to the backreaction conjecture, and physical cosmologists and astronomers including the leaders of the major past, ongoing, and future observational projects, which standardly use the FLRW model to interpret the data. In order to foster stimulating interactions the contributed talk will be 20-25 minutes long, every day will be concluded by a keynote session led by a senior scientist, and the attendance will be limited to about 50 people. The closing discussion of the workshop will be introduced by a review by G.F.R. Ellis (University of Cape Town). Inspiring discussions about the actual opportunity to revisit the cosmological standard model are expected!

    In order to assure a broad audience and a rare opportunity for Ph.D. students and curious researchers, this workshop will be prepared by a series of six introductory lectures for a total of about ten hours: Measures in General Relativity (T. Schucker, CPT Marseille), Relativistic cosmology: From perturbation theory to N-body simulations (R. Durrer, Geneva), From the averaging problem to backreaction (T. Buchert, CRAL Lyon), Cosmic variance and other fluctuations (N. Kaiser, IfA Honolulu & U. Paris-Sorbonne), Cosmological models beyond ΛCDM (P. Brax, IPhT-CEA Saclay), Bayesian inference in cosmology: statistical evidence against Lambda? (A. Heavens, Imperial College, London).

  • From 11 to 15 June

    NetSci 2018


    NetSci 2018, the flagship conference of the Network Science Society, aims to bring together leading researchers and practitioners working in the emerging area of network science. The conference fosters interdisciplinary communication and collaboration in network science research across computer and information sciences, physics, mathematics, statistics, the life sciences, neuroscience, environmental sciences, social sciences, finance and business, arts and design.

  • 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 astro-particle 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.
