We are pleased to announce that the conference CosmoSur VI will be held at the Observatorio Astronómico de Córdoba, Córdoba (Argentina) OAC – Sitio web del Observatorio Astronómico de Córdoba , from October 18th through October 22nd, 2021. It is worth mentioning that this year marks exactly 150 years since the creation of the Astronomical Observatory of Córdoba. 

The CosmoSur meetings aim to provide an environment to strengthen the relationships of South American researchers mainly in the areas of Cosmology and Gravitation; creating suitable spaces for communication and exhibition of the work of different groups and stimulating the training of students and young researchers, integrating research topics and allowing direct communication between them and different Latin American groups. This meeting has the characteristic of directly linking both theoretical and observational researchers, thus involving Latin American astronomers and physicists in different aspects of relativistic cosmology and astrophysics.

CosmoSur VI intends to repeat the success of the first five meetings that were held in Brazil, Chile and Argentina.

The conference languages will be English, Portuguese and Spanish. 

The list of invited speakers includes:

  • Federico Carrasco / IFEG-CONICET-Argentina
  • Farinaldo da Silva Queiros / Institute of International Physics – Universidade Federal do Rio Grande do Norte
  • Elisa Ferreira / Max Planck Institute for Astrophysics. Garching, Germany (To be confirmed)

The main dates are:
