This should be an eclectic meeting with topics ranging from early-universe cosmology to dark matter and dark energy to mathematical relativity. We are inviting a limited number of select speakers from various fields and plan only a few talks per day in order to leave plenty of time for informal discussions..
Confirmed Speakers & Titles
- Stephon Alexander (Brown): Chern-Simons Gravity
- Gordon Baym (Illinois): Cosmic magnetic and gravitational effects on primordial neutrino helicities
- Robert Brandenberger (McGill): Trans-Planckian Censorship, Breakdown of Effective Field Theory and Emergent Cosmology
- Andreas Burkert (LMU Munich): Properties and Puzzles of Dark Matter Halo Cores
- Ulf Danielsson (Uppsala University): Better than nothing – a higher dimensional view on quantum cosmology
- Ruth Durrer (Geneva): Cosmological Magnetic fields: primordial or recent?
- Glennys Farrar (NYU): Unexpected diversity within the Standard Model, as origin of Dark Matter and g-2 anomaly
- Anna Ijjas (NYU): Advancing Fundamental Cosmology with Numerical Relativity
- Slava Mukhanov (LMU Munich): Instantons with Quantum Core
- Lyman Page (Princeton):New method to measure B-modes
- Roger Penrose (Oxford University):CCC: Original Motivations and Current Observational Status
The workshop will conclude with a general NBIA Colloquium by Lyman Page on "The gift that keeps on giving: observing the CMB in the post Planck era".
Participation is open, but speakers are by invitation only. If you register for the workshop please note that due to space limitations you have not been accepted before you have received confirmation from NBIA Administrative Officer Michelle Westergaard.
The meeting will take place in the historical Auditorium A of the Niels Bohr Institute.
Organizers: Poul Damgaard, Anna Ijjas, Paul Steinhardt
