Manifesto

UniVersum is a novel series of cosmology meetings whose main goal is to gather on a regular basis members of the active Italian cosmology community. Besides discussing our many scientific activities, the aim of this series of encounters is also to foster collaborations amongst us and to discuss crucial topics and strategical choices that involve the community at large. Examples of regular informal workshops of this type are common in other European Countries, i.e. IberiCós in Spain and Portugal, or UKcosmo in Great Britain. We feel that also our community could strongly benefit from having a set of meetings with this format.

Here is how the idea of UniVersum saw the light of day! What we have in mind is a one-and-a-half day meeting, taking place every year in a different university or research centre all around Italy, featuring short talks from PhD students and post-docs, and extended discussion sessions led by reference senior scientists in various fields of cosmological research. As said, we envisage both usual, scientific debate sessions, as, more importantly, forums where we can discuss crucial questions related to cosmology in Italy.

Here is this edition's poster. The first three UniVersum meetings were held in Turin (2017), in Bologna (2018), and in Milan (2019).

Programme

This being the fourth edition, UniVersum has managed to become an annual encounter, easy and feasible for cosmologists from all over Italy. As now usual, this year too we shall start at on the afternoon of the first day and finish mid-afternoon two days later, with the last day more focussed on a specific topic, which for 2020 will be: Advanced statistical and analysis methods for cosmology.

The fourth edition was supposed to be held on 15th-17th April 2020, but due to the worldwide SARS-CoV-2 pandemic outbreak, it will be postponed later in the year (date TBD). The provisional programme and timetable is available here.

Location

The fourth encounter of the UniVersum series will take place in Padua, in the Sala Consiliare of the Provincia di Padova, located in the historical Palazzo Santo Stefano. Here you can find the location on Google maps.

Many lodging facilities are available whithin walking distance, from hotels to B&Bs, hostels and airbnb's.

The participants should contact directly their hotel to arrange for the reservation.
