Guadeloupe Islands
America/Guadeloupe timezone

This is the 3rd World Summit meeting, following the second one organized in Guadeloupe Islands (June 2018) and the first one organized in Galapagos Islands (June 2006).

The main goal is to discuss progress and future directions related to outstanding issues, both in Cosmology and in Particle Physics. The successes and shortcomings of the Standard Cosmological model as well as the Standard Particle Physics model will be reviewed through the last astrophysical observations and accelerator experiment results.

We hope that original ideas will emerge form the discussions between theorists, astrophysicists and particle physicists.

This conference is supported by the association Physique-Outremer
