we would like to bring to your attention the second edition of the international conference

Progress on Old and New Themes in cosmology - PONT 2011
http://indico.cern.ch/event/PONT2011

to be held in the rooms of the prestigious Popes' Palace in Avignon (France) on 18−22 April 2011.

The aim of the conference is to gather a selected number of people working in cosmology and particle physics to address the cardinal issues of the dark universe today, in the inspiring and monumental setting of Avignon. The format will consist in a limited number of talks by leading experts in the field, with the aim of encouraging debate and discussion. Typically, each morning will be devoted to a particular theme, with three or four key-speakers reviewing the state of the art, and will serve as an introduction to the topical discussions. There will be time allocated to (we hope) lively and thorough debates on the issues introduced during the review sessions. A limited number of shorter contributed talks will take place in the afternoons as well.

The registration/abstract submission deadline is the 1st of March. The registration fee is 250 Euros.

Avignon is only 2.5 hours from Paris by high-speed TGV train and is also easily reached by train from Lyon and Marseille.
The town boasts an exceptional number of tourist attractions, including the Popes' Palace, and beautiful surroundings which are known world-wide for their gastronomic and wine making tradition. A banquet is included in the registration fee for all participants.

Looking forward to meeting you in Avignon!
