We kindly invite you to participate in the 6th „Kosmologietag“ in Bielefeld on 5 / 6 May 2011. We plan on having informal talks by young scientists, complemented by invited overview talks, given by

Fedor Bezrukov, LMU Munich
How to explain the universe with electroweak scale only

Samuel Leach, SISSA Trieste
Planck: Status and results

Chris Clarkson, Cape Town
Dark energy and inhomogeneity

You are welcome to submit a talk about any aspect of cosmology. Areas of cosmology which we expect to cover include the CMB, dark matter, inflation, dark energy (and its alternatives) and baryo- / leptogenesis.

Due to unprecedented demand for the sixth Kosmologietag in Bielefeld, we have decided to bring forward the deadline for submitting a talk title to * Sunday the 10th of April * and we will make a selection of talks shortly afterwards. The programme is announced on the website now. We apologise for any inconvenience caused by the change in the deadline.

Sorry, registration for talks is no longer possible!

Due to huge demand and the size of conference room, we might not be able to accommodate any more participants. If you still wish to join and have not registered, please register and we will contact you closer to the time of the meeting to confirm whether there is space, your registration is not confirmed until then. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.

The first day of the workshop will begin after lunch on Thursday,  the 5th of May, and will consist of 2 – 3 sessions, followed by a dinner at the IBZ. On the second day we will have another two sessions and we will finish around lunchtime, so that travel back home is possible on the same day if desired. 

There is no registration fee and coffee-breaks and dinner at the IBZ will be free for our guests, but we will not be able to give financial support for travel and accommodation.

For questions concerning support (in individual cases) or talks, please, contact:
