Cosmology has benefited greatly from the rapid development of experiments over the last decades. The goal of this Nordita program is to discuss current status and future perspectives in theoretical cosmology in light of currently available and expected data. What have we learnt from current data? What fundamental questions in physics can be probed with cosmology? How can advances in theoretical cosmology inform the choices made for new observatories and new observational directions? Given current technology, which of these questions can we address right now?
During the program (weeks 1, 2, and 4), there will be typically a few talks and discussion sessions per day, leaving ample time for interaction and collaboration.
During the third week of the program (July 17-21), we are organizing a larger conference devoted to Inflation and the Cosmic Microwave Background. For this conference, we are hoping to bring together theorists, data analyzers, and experimentalist to discuss the future of this scientific endeavour.
