Gravitational Lensing in the Age of Survey Science
19−23 March 2012
Snowbird Ski Resort, Utah, USA
The 4th annual Snowbird Workshop on Particle Astrophysics, Astronomy, and Cosmology (SnowPAC) will be held from 19−23 March 2012 at Snowbird Ski Resort in Utah, USA, with a topical focus on "Gravitational Lensing in the Age of Survey Science."
In the past decade, gravitational lensing has transitioned from a "small-N" to a "large-N" discipline. Strong-, weak-, and micro-lensing measurements now form a significant component of current and planned surveys across a broad spectrum of astrophysics and cosmology. This conference aims to highlight the scientific contributions and potential from lensing in this context, and to address the theoretical, observational, and technical challenges to scientific inference from lensing measurements in large surveys.
In the interest of deepening connections between the lensing community and the broader subject areas to which lensing provides unique observational constraints, we also invite lensing-related contributions from researchers working in areas such as: AGN and quasar physics; galaxy structure, dynamics, and evolution; clusters of galaxies; dark matter structure and substructure; cosmology; gravitational physics; and extrasolar planets.
