The 11th LISA Cosmology Working Group Workshop will take place at the Instituto de Astrofísica e Ciências do Espaço/University of Porto on June 17th-21st, 2024.

The workshop's objective is to convene the LISA Cosmology Working Group community to examine recent advancements in cosmology pertinent to LISA. Its purpose is to kickstart collaborative projects and tackle unresolved issues in LISA cosmology.


The discussed topics include:

  • Predictions for SGWBs from the early universe
  • Detection of stochastic backgrounds and foregrounds
  • Characterization of isotropic and anisotropic SGWB components
  • Standard sirens and cosmological tests of the late universe
  • Cosmological probes of general relativity and non-standard paradigms
  • Primordial black holes and dark matter
  • Gravitational-wave lensing
  • Structure formation

Around half of the time will be dedicated to the CosWG collaborative projects.

The call for abstracts is open until May 10th.
The registration remains open until May 19th

A 60 contribution is requested for in-person participants. The fees will cover coffee breaks and provide partial assistance to participants in need of financial support. The details for payment of the registration fee will be provided by email after filling out the registration form

The workshop is restricted to LISA CosWG members. Non-LISA members interested in the workshop should apply for membership, but due to the time delays in the application process, they should apply as soon as possible. For instructions on the LISA application, see here https://signup.lisamission.org/.

This workshop is partially supported by FCT - Fundação para a Ciência e a Tecnologia through the R & D project 2022.03495.PTDC – Uncovering the nature of cosmic strings.
