Hot topics in Modern Cosmology

Spontaneous Workshop XV

April 16th – 22th, 2023, IESC Cargese, France

IESC Poster of the SW14

Spontaneous Workshop (SW) brings together specialists in particle physics, astrophysics and theoretical physics at the Institute of Scientific Studies of Cargèse (IESC) to exchange recent knowledge on Cosmology in a constructive atmosphere. The goal is to stimulate debate for generating innovative ideas on emerging issues. With this in mind, the number of participants is limited to 30-40 and the workshop program is based on an optimal number of concise presentations, with a sufficient discussion space to facilitate interactions between participants. Postdoctoral and PhD students are encouraged to participate.

Just keep in mind that :

  • SW differs from a traditional workshop in that the program is specified only two weeks before it starts, based on a selection of talks submitted by the participants.
  • The number of participants depends on the availability of IESC, which hosts another event at the same period of time, and might be less than 40.
  • IESC (or anyone else) will not contact you whatever reasons (accommodation,…). Beware of scams !
