Workshop in Cosmology: Challenges to ΛCDM

Post by George Alestas » May 15 2022

4-7 September 2022. Aristotle University of Thessaloniki (AUTH), Thessaloniki, Greece

The aim of the workshop is to review the status of the standard ΛCDM paradigm, draw attention to open issues that may question its foundations and robustness, as well as discuss alternatives that could alleviate the tensions, and consider possible future perspectives. The topics of debate include:
  • Latest Measurements of Cosmological Parameters
  • Theoretical and Observational Challenges to ΛCDM
  • Alternatives to the ΛCDM paradigm
  • Challenges to the Cosmological Principle

The meeting is organized by the Cosmology Group at the Astronomy Lab of the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki and the venue is on the university campus, near the city center. The event is part of the three-year research project "Tilted Cosmology", funded by the Hellenic Foundation for Research & Innovation.
