The 9th KIAS Workshop on

Cosmology and Structure Formation


November 2nd-6th, 2020












Home Home > Home

     The workshop will be held at Korea Insitute for Advanced Study in Republic of Korea between 2nd and 6th of November 2020.  The purpose of this workshop is to bring together the world-wide researchers for open and active discussions about recent challenging issues on the cosmology and structure formation. The workshop program is made including theoretical cosmology, cosmological observations, computational astrophysics, galaxy formation and evolution, gravitational lensing, and the artificial intelligience application to various astrophysical problems. 



     However, owing to the ongoing pandemic threatening to the global health care, we changed the format of the conference to a hybrid like in-person and online presentations. The onsite talks will be given by speakers who can come to the meeting place and the online talks will be arranged for speakers outside Korea who can give talks using the online conference tools. All presentations will be streamed online for participants who can not attend the meeting. 


     We are deeply sorry for this change of workshop format and sincerely hope that this may not dissuade people from participating in the workshop. We all expect to see you in-person or online during the workshop and to make the workshop successful as before. We wish you all well in these difficult times.


   The submission of presentation abstracts has been closed. Still, we are welcoming online attendance. If you wish to join the meeting, please register from the registration tab (top right).
