The main objective of this second edition of a workshop on current challenges in cosmology is to discuss several topics related with large scale structure (LSS) formation both from a theoretical and an observational point of view. Roughly speaking, the topics of discussion can be classified in the following subjects:
- Cosmological perturbation theory of LSS.
- Effective field theory of LSS.
- Modified gravity models. Galileons, Horndeski and beyond, bigravity, etc.
- Connections between inflationary physics and LSS.
- Weak lensing.
- Connections with observations. Observational ongoing and planed missions.
The workshop is intended to facilitate communication and discussion among researchers, to promote future collaborations and to boost the work of local research groups in theoretical and data-driven cosmology. Along with plenary talks, there will also be discussion sessions aimed to provoke debate and stimulate collaborative work among the participants. The list of invited speakers was designed with the purpose of bringing together a group of researchers with a well known long term trajectory, jointly with a group of young authors with an important progression in their careers during the latest years and with a remarkable academic production in the interest subjects of the workshop.
We will reserve some space for a poster session for the interested participants for Thursday November 1st. Additionally, we will also select six (6) short talks (15' length) for Monday and Tuesday. These sessions are intended for the students and participants to have the opportunity to discuss details about their current research projects on cosmology and interact with the speakers and the other participants.
