Dear Collegues,

We invite you to take part in the conference “Varying Constants and Fundamental Cosmology” which will take place in Szczecin, Poland from 12th to 17th of September 2016. This is the fourth of fundamental cosmology conferences organized by the Cosmology Group, University of Szczecin (after Cosmofun'2005, Grasscosmofun'09, Multicosmofun'12).

The task of the conference is to bring together specialists dealing with the problem of varying (dynamical) physical constants, fundamental cosmology (alternative gravities, superstring, brane, etc.) and multiverse who want to exchange the current ideas in these topics. The program of the conference will contain 5 plenary morning sessions and 4 afternoon parallel sessions. The last day of the conference will be devoted to philosophical aspects of variability of the physical constants and the frontiers of physics and cosmology. There will also be a poster session if the number of abstracts is above our talk time capabilities. The oral presentations will be selected by the sessions conveners in collaboration with the Organizing Committee.

Invited speakers:

Brett Altschul, University of South Carolina, USA (TBC)
John D. Barrow, Univ. Cambridge, UK
Julian Berengut, University of New South Wales, Australia
Brandon Carter, LuTh, Observatoire de Paris-Meudon, Paris
Paul C.W. Davies, Arizona State Univ., USA
Michael Duff, Imperial College, London, UK
Victor Flambaum, University of New South Wales, Australia
