Duration of the Meeting :

25 - 28 May 2021

The meeting will take place remotely over zoom connection.


The purpose of this workshop is to discuss and exchange ideas on the most stimulating recent developments in cosmology and fundamental physics. 

The workshop is explorative in nature. It focuses on novel frontiers for the theoretical understanding of gravity and other interactions and their interface with observational cosmology and astrophysics.   Its  goal is to understand how observations can shed light to the fundamental questions in understanding the universe and how new ideas in theory can be tested experimentally.

 The workshop  aims to encourage new ideas and new collaborations among theorists and observers working in cosmology and gravitation.

This workshop is the 13th in a series organized since 2008  jointly by APC (Universite de Paris, France), the Perimeter Institute (Waterloo, Canada) and the International Solvay Institutes (Brussels, Belgium). The previous edition was held in Perimeter in 2019.


The program times are in Central European time (CET, Paris-Brussels)


Toronto time is 6 hours earlier.
