The goal of PPC is to bring together experts in the fields of Particle Physics and Cosmology, and stress the connection between the two fields. Advances in high-energy physics can have an impact on our understanding of the physics of the early universe, possibly shedding light on the era of inflation, the identity of dark matter and/or dark energy, the origin of the observed baryon abundance, the importance of neutrinos in the evolution of our universe, and how the large scale structures of the universe arose. Conversely, information from such diverse fields can impact the directions in particle physics model building and can motivate specific types of searches in high-energy physics experiments. The latest results from various ongoing experiments will be discussed along with theoretical interpretations and predictions for the upcoming experiments. We will provide a lively venue for the exchange of scientific ideas among experts in these areas. There is no registration fee.

Deadline for Abstract Submission: May 22, 2016
