Modified Gravity on Cosmological Scales

23 Jun 2008 - 10:00am
23 Jun 2008 - 6:00pm

Workshop overview

On the 23rd of June 2008, The Institute of Cosmology and Gravitation (ICG) at the University of Portsmouth will this year, host their annual one day workshop on "modified gravity on cosmological scales". The meeting will focus on both theoretical and observations aspects of modified gravity as an explanation to the measured accelerated expansion of the universe. We will explore new theoretical developments, planned surveys and results from various fields, including large scale structure, weak lensing, supernovae, clusters and the microwave background.

Please note, there is no conference fee and the ICG will provide coffee and lunch on the day.

Invited speakers include

  • Luca Amendola (Rome)
  • Edmund Copeland (Nottingham)
  • Martin Kunz (Sussex)
  • Alexandre Refregier (Saclay)
  • Yong-seon Song (ICG)
  • Jean-Philippe Uzan (Paris)
