Second Texas Cosmology Network Meeting

The aim of the first Texas Cosmology Network Meeting (2006) was to bring first-rank active cosmologists from the universities within Texas, and build the "Texas Cosmology Network". Our second meeting will be held October 29-30, 2009 on the campus of The University of Texas at Austin, and will feature two full days of talks, presentations, and discussion on the enterprise of cosmology from the perspective of Texas researchers. The purpose of the second meeting is to get ourselves updated on the most recent topics in cosmology and activities at various institutions in Texas. We will have four broad focus areas: early universe (inflation), dark energy, dark matter, and structure formation in the universe.
