Cosmology 2016 “Meeting on Fundamental Cosmology”

Cosmology 2016
Institute of Cosmos Sciences (IEEC-UB)
Institute of Cosmos Sciences, Physics Building, University of Barcelona
The annual series of Meetings on Fundamental Cosmology aims to provide a forum for discussing and reviewing all the current and upcoming large survey projects in Physical Cosmology in which scientists in Spain are involved, while encouraging at the same time the interaction with groups working on related research areas in observations, experiments and theory, including numerical simulations, instrumentation, astrophysics, gravitation and particle physics. This forum, held in previous years in Valencia, Fuerteventura and Santander, is intended to help us identify our challenges and opportunities for the future. The three-day workshop in Barcelona, which will be held at the Physics building of the University of Barcelona that hosts the Institute of Cosmos Sciences, will discuss the status and results or expectations of several large-scale structure surveys (DES, DESI, BOSS, JPAS, PAU, WEAVE, 4-MOST, QUIJOTE, LSST) and will include review talks on neutrinos in cosmology, dark matter detection, gravitational waves, high-energy astrophysics, and theoretical cosmology. Applications for oral contributions are welcome. The meeting will also have poster papers with dedicated sessions of 2 minute talks to briefly present their content, which are open to contributions from all participants.
