In almost a century of progress, particle Dark Matter (DM) remains the single, most powerful physics concept able to explain otherwise anomalous observations on all cosmological scales, from motions of stars in the solar neighbourhood to its imprint on the horizon of the observable Universe.

The past decade has seen a significant growth in cosmological observations that have placed increasingly tighter constraints on the cosmological model and the basic parameters that describe it. While we have an excellent phenomenological model a more fundamental picture is largely missing, considering both the very earliest times where high-energy processes are relevant and in the late-time universe, where we are in the curious position of living in a universe that is 95% dark.

The Center for Fundamental Physics (CFP) at Zewail City of Science and Technology is organizing its first international conference on Quantum Gravity, Cosmology and String Theory (QGCS15) in Giza, Egypt from 11 to 15 January 2016.

Hubble and Spitzer have observed galaxies over 95% of the way back to the Big Bang, well into the epoch of reionization and close to the dawn of galaxy formation. The most distant galaxy candidates have been discovered using two complementary observational strategies: blank field observations such as CANDELS and the Ultra Deep Field; and galaxy cluster lensing programs such as CLASH. Additional deep observations are required to discover larger samples of distant galaxies and mitigate the cosmic variance of the single UDF. Deep lensing observations can reveal even fainter sources that would otherwise be inaccessible to current telescopes. Continua a leggere Yale Frontier Fields Workshop
This program is oriented towards WIMP (10th-16th) and axion (17th-21st) dark matter searches, covering also other candidates. The aim is to promote the collaboration and exchange of ideas. The list of invited speakers includes theoretical as well as experimental experts. Main topics of the workshop include: Dark Matter, WIMP, Axion, Astro-particle physics.
The Planck Satellite measurement have increased the accuracy of cosmological observations to a level which allows to constrain cosmological models with unprecedented precision. The aim of this workshop is to discuss the implications of these recent results combined with other (i.e. Planck, but also WMAP, galaxy surveys, SNIa data…) on models that aim at describing the primordial epochs and the origin and formation of large scale structures of the Universe.
