2nd Anisotropic Universe Workshop: Unveiling the Anisotropic Universe




In this second edition of the Anisotropic Universe Workshop, “Unveiling the Anisotropic Universe”, we plan to have about 50 participants highly interested in debating the study of anisotropies in astrophysics and cosmology. We organized a similar workshop in September 2013 in Amsterdam (1st Anisotropic Universe Workshop) that was a success and resulted in several fruitful collaborations.

The study of anisotropies is a cross-field topic that is quickly developing thanks to the incredibly detailed data that we have been collecting during the last few years from microwaves, with Plank, up to very-high energies, with Fermi, just to cite two instruments. Our plan in to exploit the momentum that this cross-field topic is gaining to launch a collaborative effort to unravel fundamental issues in astrophysics and cosmology as, for example, the origin of ultra-high energy cosmic rays and neutrinos, and the nature of dark matter.
