KEK Cosmophysics Workshop DE2008

Is our Universe really undergoing
an accelerated expansion ?

KEK (Institute of High Energy Physics), Tukuba, Japan

Tsukuba Campus 4th-bldg 3F Seminar room

Dec. 8 - 12, 2008


The main purpose of the workshop is to draw a definite conclusion about the reality of cosmological acceleration at present or at least provide a chance to kick off serious collaborations of theoretical studies on observational cosmology to finalise this issue. The style of the workshop is to have about two seminar/discussion sessions per days, and as much time as possible is left for mutual discussions/interactions. Because of this nature of the workshop, we basically restrict the participants to those who were invited by SOC. The total number of participants will be limited to about 25.
