Cosmology with CMB-S4 workshop at Harvard University, Aug. 24-25, 2017.

The CMB-S4 Collaboration Workshop at Harvard (August 2017) will continue the series of open workshops for the CMB observational and theoretical community to define the 'Stage-4' ground-based cosmic microwave background (CMB) experiment.

From the CMB-S4 homepage: ''[this experiment], consisting of dedicated telescopes equipped with highly sensitive superconducting cameras operating at the South Pole, the high Chilean Atacama plateau, and possibly northern hemisphere sites, will provide a dramatic leap forward in our understanding of the fundamental nature of space and time and the evolution of the Universe. CMB-S4 will be designed to cross critical thresholds in testing inflation, determining the number and masses of the neutrinos, constraining possible new light relic particles, providing precise constraints on the nature of dark energy, and testing general relativity on large scales.''

Topics of the workshop

  • Science case updates and discussion of a possible second edition of the science book
  • Review of the CMB-S4 technology book
  • Progress on sky models, simulations, data quality validation
  • Other inputs for the fall report of the CMB-S4 Concept Definition Team
  • Definition of the CMB-S4 collaboration model.
