The Dark Energy from Fundamental Theories to Observations Conference will be held in the Bruno Touschek Auditorium (Bldg. 36, access from LNF secondary entrance in Via E. Fermi, 60 – see map).
Aim of the meeting:
The problem of dark energy has unprecedentedly taken a central stage in the gravitation and cosmology research field, also in the view of the discrepancies found in the current expansion of the Universe as derived from Planck data and from local direct measurements. In this regard, we aim at organizing an international workshop to discuss dark energy both from the theoretical and observational points of view. The workshop will be a precursor to the growing interest that this topic will gain in the near future due to the launch of the Euclid satellite, planned for next year, and complementary ground-based observatories, such as the Vera Rubin one (LSST). We would like to gather experts (both from the theory and observational sides) to understand together, through talks and discussion sessions, which predictions of fundamental theories can be tested by observations and, conversely, which new roads in fundamental physics may be opened by the future data.
