Structure of Meeting:

The 20th annual international Conference on Particle Physics and Cosmology (COSMO-16) will be held in the Michigan League at the campus of the University of Michigan. The meeting is hosted by the Physics Department of the University of Michigan, with further support from the Oskar Klein Center at Stockholm University. The COSMO series is one of the major venues of interaction between cosmologists and particle physicists. Topics to be discussed include:

  • Dark matter and dark energy
  • Inflation and primordial physics
  • Results from CMB and LSS experiments and from dark matter searches
  • Particle astrophysics
  • Results from the Large Hadron Collider
