33rd International Cosmic Ray Conference

33rd International Cosmic Ray Conference

The 33rd International Cosmic Ray Conference (ICRC2013) will be held from 2-9 July, 2013, in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. The Conference is organized under the auspices of the International Union of Pure and Applied Physics (IUPAP) and is hosted by the Centro Brasileiro de Pesquisas Físicas (CBPF). The ICRC is the major conference in the area of…

EChO Open Science Workshop

EChO Open Science Workshop

EChO2013 is an open workshop about the EChO (Exoplanet Characterisation Observatory) M3 mission candidate to be held at ESA-ESTEC in Noordwijk (the Netherlands) on July 1-3, 2013. EChO is a mission dedicated to the observation of atmospheres of planets around nearby stars. These planets will span a range of masses, from gas giants to super-Earths, stellar…

Theoretical Challenges in Large Scale Structure

Theoretical Challenges in Large Scale Structure

In the last ten years, a wealth of observational data has revolutionized cosmology, allowing to pin down the cosmological parameters with an amazing precision. In the currently favored cosmological model, the wide range of cosmological structures we observe today formed from the nonlinear evolution of tiny fluctuations which were imprinted during an inflationary phase in…

Sesto 2013: Tracing Cosmic Evolution with Clusters of Galaxies

Sesto 2013: Tracing Cosmic Evolution with Clusters of Galaxies

Following the Sesto-2001 and Sesto-2007 Conferences, we are organizing a new conference in Sesto Pusteria, in the heart of the Italian Dolomites, dedicated to studies of the evolution and formation of cosmic structures with galaxy clusters, with the title "Sesto 2013 - Tracing Cosmic Evolution with Clusters of Galaxies". In recent years, X-ray and radio observations…

New Horizons for Observational Cosmology

New Horizons for Observational Cosmology

This school comes at a unique time in cosmology. Our understanding of the Universe has been revolutionized by observations of the cosmic microwave background (in particular Wilkinson Microwave Anisotropy Probe), the large-scale structure of the universe (Two-degree-Field Galaxy Redshift Survey and Sloan Digital Sky Survey), and distant supernovae. These studies have conclusively shown that we are living in a…

The principle of naturalness

Alcuni tra i maggiori scienziati di fama mondiale stanno iniziando a considerare seriamente una proposta avanzata nel 1997 da tre fisici della University of Delaware. Se si dimostrerà corretta, essa potrebbe sfatare alcune delle scoperte che i fisici si aspettano dai prossimi esperimenti del Large Hadron Collider (LHC). Inoltre, questa idea andrebbe a supportare il concetto…
