EDSU-Tools 2024


The EDSU-Tools 2024 conference will be held in island of Noirmoutier (France)  from 2nd to 7th of June 2024.

The ''5th World Summit on Exploring the Dark Side of the Universe ''  is a follow-up of ''World Summit '' conferences held in Galapagos Island (2003), Guadeloupe Island (EDSU2018 and EDSU2020) and La Reunion Island (EDSU2022).

EDSU conferences are among the major venues of interaction between cosmologists and particle and astroparticle physicists. The main goal is to discuss progress and future directions related to outstanding issues, both in Cosmology and in Particle Physics.

EDSU-Tools 2024 has two major additional features : 
- focusing on tools, in the widest sense, allowing physics progress in the above domains i.e.: instrumentation, electronics, big data, AI, theories, models, soft skills...
- and, on june 5th, enlarging tools to the ones used in close by domains of physics namely with interventions in astronomy of planets, quantum physics, photonics, with the participation of Michel Mayor, Nobel Laureate 2019 for exoplanets.

Strong impact on local population is planned through numerous public and school events, see details at Promoting science page.

In particular, on june 4th, a "Table ronde : la vie des 'stars' "  in Noirmoutier en l"Ile will gather  Michel Mayor, astronomer, 2019 Nobel Laureate in physics, Carlo Rovelli, theorist in quantum gravity, author of best seller books in physics, Alexandre Couillon, the local 3* chef, at l'Herbaudière and Chloé Trespeuch, a local Olympic champion, under moderation of Marie Odile Monchicourt, scientific journalist. Note that Olympic Flame wil go through "le Gois", the submersible road linking the continent to Noirmoutier, this very day in the morning.

We hope that original ideas will emerge from exchange between participants from varied experimental, observational and theoretical expertise.

This conference is jointly organised by Subatech Nantes Laboratory and the association Physique-Outremer
