Notice - Conference finally postponed to 2021 - Tentative dates

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. DM (Theory, Observations, Detection)
  2. The present Cosmological Model 
  3. Structures in the Universe 
  4. New observational probes of the Universe
  5. Multimessenger cosmology (Gravitational waves, Cosmic rays, Neutrinos)

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

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