The McWilliams Center for Cosmology at Carnegie Mellon University is organizing a Workshop on Cosmic Acceleration from Aug. 24-26 (Fri-Sun), 2012, in Pittsburgh, PA, USA. This workshop aims to bring together leading researchers and students, working on both the theory and observations of the initial conditions of the Universe and various areas of dark energy such as modified gravity. We believe that the workshop should provide a unique platform for researchers in the areas of inflation and dark energy to interact and discuss great ideas. It will also present a great learning opportunity for students, whom we strongly encourage to apply.
There is no registration fee for students.
We take great pleasure in inviting you for the workshop. The registration deadline is July 31, 2012. You may visit the workshop webpage for more information and for registering:
