Description
An ICTP Hybrid Meeting. You can submit your application for participation in presence or online.

The purpose of the School is to provide an introduction to the current state of research in cosmology and astroparticle physics. It is intended for beginning graduate students, as well as more senior non-expert researchers interested in the field. During the School, the 2021 Dirac Medal Ceremony will take place to honor the contributions of  A. Buonanno, T. Damour, F. Pretorius, and S. Teukolsky to the field of gravitational waves.

Topics:
  • CMB
  • Dark Energy
  • Gravitational Waves
  • Inflation
  • Statistical Methods in Cosmology
  • Structure Formation
Speakers include:
A. PARANJAPE, IUCAA, INDIA
M. PELOSO, Padua University, Italy
F. PRETORIUS, Princeton University, USA
B. SHERWIN, University of Cambridge, UK
S. TEUKOLSKY, Caltech and Cornell University, USA
R. TROTTA, SISSA, Italy and Imperial College London, UK
F. VERNIZZI, IPhT, CEA, France
 
Participants are encouraged to submit abstracts for contributed talk. A number of short oral presentation slots will be available for some of them upon selection.

Accepted participants will be able to attend in remote or — strictly following Italian sanitary rules as they will be applicable at the time of the conference, and depending on the very limited number of available places — in person. As regards the COVID-19 policy, we advise to follow the updated rules available on the ICTP page Access Guidelines for Visitors.
 
Grants:
A limited number of grants are available to support the attendance of selected participants, with priority given to participants from developing countries.
There is no registration fee.
