  • Du 28 au 31 mai

    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).

    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.

    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.

    Young physicists, mathematicians and philosophers shall meet for a crazy one-week expedition lost between earth and sky at the boundary of the thinkable world. The goal of this summer-school 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 in-depth courses given in the mornings and radical, open and creative activities in the afternoons.

    IESC Pre-school, Analytics, Inference, and Computation in Cosmology : Advanced methods

    Institut d’Etudes Scientifiques de Cargèse (Corse), France

    view website

    This 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.
