XIIIth School of Cosmology
 
November 12 - 18, 2017IESC, Cargèse
The CMB from A to Z
promises and challenges of the CMB as a cosmological probe


Program

Courses are given daily from Monday to Friday in sessions of 45 minutes (#) from 8:30 am to 5:30 pm, followed by 45 minutes of discussion and three 15-minute presentations given by participants. Interruptions of 30 and 90 minutes (coffee breaks and lunches) will allow for exchanges and provide opportunities for speakers to develop their topics informally.
