Cosmology offers today one of the most important frontiers of physics. The mystery of dark matter and the puzzle of dark energy are still outstanding.  On the observational side, there is an exponential growth of accurate and important data, which will help in establishing the new needed theories.

In this conference we plan to bring together researchers from the observational, computer simulation and theoretical sides working in cosmology, astrophysics and astroparticle physics, to discuss the current situation as well as  prospects for the future improvements.

All the topics will be discussed from different angles starting from the booming flow of observational data. The topics to be discussed will include:

  1. The current Cosmological Model and its Tensions (Theory and observations)
  2. Dark Matter (Theory, Observations, Detection, Production)
  3. The Evolving Universe (Reionization, first galaxies and their SMBH, Quasars and AGN, the assembly of cosmological structures)
  4. Probes of the Universe from (new incoming) measurements of the CMB and of its Large Scale structure.
  5. Multimessenger cosmology (Gravitational waves, Cosmic Gamma and X-rays, Neutrinos)
  6. Black holes in the Universe over 10 orders of magnitude in mass
  7. Astrophysical aspects of Cosmology.

A number of invited talks from leading scientists as well as a number of  contributed ones from participants will be presented.

The conference will take place in presence in the Miramare campus, in a conductive atmosphere, appropriate for the dramatic paradigm shift that we may be witnessing in these days.  

The conference will begin on the morning of Monday and end before lunch on Saturday.

The conference fee is 200€, both for contributing speakers and attendees. There is still the possibility to attend remotely, with a fee of 30€.   In the registration form the applicants must provide the requested information, in order to receive the payment instructions

There will be a Special Issue of the peer-reviewed  MDPI journal "Physics" related to this Conference. In this regard,  participants can  submit an original work/review/letter  connected with their invited/contributed talk/accepted poster.
