CONFERENCE PROGRAM


The program is presently under construction.
It will consist of plenary talks, both review and contribution talks.

The present status of observational cosmology will be the main topic of the conference. But since future programs are being discussed and defined now, this will be reflected in the program sketched below, with most of the items including a "future programs" section

Contributions are welcome: abstracts submitted on this web site will be selected by the scientific committee.

A. Cosmic Microwave Background

  • Status of the cosmological model after Planck
  • lensing: Planck results
  • polarisation: latest results from BICEP-KECK, ACT, SPT, POLARBEAR
  • Cross-correlations: CMB vs CIB, CMB vs Lyman-α, CMB vs SZ ...
  • data consistency
  • large-scale cosmic microwave anomalies
  • theories/models on anomalies and their prediction on polarisation
  • Spectral distorsions
  • Future programs on CMB: QUBIC, Simons Array, LiteBIRD, S4
