The 2018 edition of the Iberian Cosmology Meeting (IberiCOS 2018) will be held at the Faculty of Sciences of the University of Lisbon from the 26th to the 28th of March 2018. It will be hosted by the Lisbon based Cosmology group of the Institute of Astrophysics and Space Sciences, Portugal. This series of meetings is aimed at encouraging the interaction and collaboration between researchers working in Cosmology and related areas (Gravitation, Particle Physics and Astronomy) in Portugal and Spain. Researchers working in other countries are also most welcome.
The meetings are informal and there is no registration fee. Deadline for registration is the 18thof March. All participants wishing to give a talk about their work will be able to do so by naming a topic or title when they register, and submitting their abstract before the 11th of March 2018. Should there be excessive demand, preference will be given to younger researchers. All participants will be given 15+5 minutes to present their work.
The journal Universe is kindly supporting the meeting by sponsoring a Best Presentation Award.
These meetings are designed to encourage the presentation of work in progress. In this same spirit the meetings will not be restricted to a single focused topic, but are open to cosmologists in the broadest sense, from theoretical particle physics to observational astrophysics. Stimulating interactions between theorists and observers is also a particular concern of the organisers.
There is some limited funds available to support PhD students accommodation in double occupancy rooms. To apply for these funds, the candidate must contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org with a reference letter form his/her supervisor. A limited number of grants from the Red Temática de Relatividad y Gravitación are available for Spain-based young researchers and PhD students to attend to the Ibericos. For further details please see the announcement at Red Temática de Ralatividad y Gravitación.
