To accomplish the extraordinary, you must seek extraordinary people. — James Lee Byars

This two day retreat brings together the top minds, thinkers and doers, in the fields of the physics of the universe both theoretical and experimental. The meeting fosters exchange, and when the best people talk the outcome is advance and growth. We avoid standard prepared talks, and focus on exciting forefront issues, where there may be differences of opinion, or new results that will provoke wide discussion. The summit this year is inspired by the astounding discovery at the LHC, recent and upcoming results by satellite and ground-based experiments on dark matter searches and paradigm shifting/breaking ideas in string theory, gravity and cosmology.
