KMI-IEEC Joint International Workshop

KMI-IEEC Joint International Workshop

— Inflation, Dark Energy, and Modified Gravity in the PLANCK
Era —

3rd August, 2013

Kobayashi-Maskawa Institute for the Origin of Particles and the
Universe (KMI), ES635 Science Symposia


The current accelerated expansion of the universe as well as
inflation in the early universe have been supported by recent
various cosmological observations including the PLANCK data. In
the commemoration of the official agreement for the cooperative
collaborations between KMI and IEEC, after acquiring the precise
observational results of the PLANCK satellite, we hold this
international workshop and concentrate on the issue of the
cosmic acceleration in both the early and late-time universe, so
that we can find some clues to resolve such most fundamental
and important problems in modern cosmology.
