Every year, the ISAPP European network organises schools in astroparticle physics at the doctoral level for experimentalists, observers and theorists. The present school will be held in Paris, 15- 25 June 2015, and is dedicated to Cosmology. Time is ripe for an in-depth look at the field in light of the new results from the Planck satellite mission and the beginning of an era of large surveys dedicated to dark energy research. No prior experience in cosmology is required as introductory courses will present the standard cosmological model and observational techniques. Topics to be covered include the cosmic microwave background, the early universe, large-scale structure, dark energy observations and theory, modified gravity, instrumental techniques. It will finish with a look to future prospects in major research areas.
The present school is open to PhD students and post-docs working in the fields of cosmology, high energy astrophysics and particle physics and will be held in Paris, at the AstroParticle and Cosmology (APC) laboratory, from 15 to 25 June 2015.
