Cosmology from Home 2023 (3 July – 14 July)

We are very happy to announce the fourth annual Cosmology from Home conference, which will be held from 3 July – 14 July 2023.

Cosmology from Home is an online cosmology conference with a novel format aimed at bringing the real-world workshop experience into the online domain. The format includes the use of pre-recorded talks, and a combination of asynchronous and scheduled live discussions. A permanently-available and freely-navigated discussion space also facilitates ongoing and organic, face-to-face discussions. The conference will bring together cosmologists from around the world to discuss the current state of cosmology at the interface of theory and observations.

Registration is now open: (Note: there will be a limited number of participants.)

Abstract submission will close on 23 May 2023, 23:59 UTC.

Best regards,
Elisa Ferreira, Shaun Hotchkiss, Niko Šarčević, Mariana Vargas-Magaña, Benjamin Wallisch and Matthijs van der Wild (Cosmology from Home organizers)

Reminder: Abstract submission for Cosmology from Home 2023 closes on May 23 at 23:59 UTC.

A reminder of all the awesomeness available to conference participants:
  • Great plenary talks and talk discussions (on early galaxies in JWST, analog simulations, parity violation, public engagement, cosmic voids, LSS surveys, LSS theory, peculiar velocities, line intensity mapping, dark matter, beyond ΛCDM, the CMB and string cosmology);
  • A deep-dive discussion on the S8 tension, featuring multiple experts discussing over multiple iterations;
  • Organized themed discussions on whatever you wish to discuss. If there is something you want to talk or ask about, come to the conference, suggest the topic and we will schedule the discussion (about cosmology research itself or research life);
  • Our own version of Would I Lie to You, where prominent members of the cosmology community reveal their embarrassing secrets and the rest of us bond while we guess which secret is true;
  • Many parallel talks and talk discussions on the full breadth of cosmology research happening today;
  • And more.
If you cannot fully engage for the entire two weeks and are uncertain about whether you should attend, you should probably still attend. Of course, if you can interact for both weeks, that is wonderful. However even if you can only make one live or asynchronous text-based discussion, but you engage fully with it, you will still gain something and the conference will be better for it.

We look forward to seeing you!
