The Symposium will summarize through a series of invited overview talks the fundamental physics questions that are being address with current and upcoming experiments and surveys. Besides the focus on the scientific objectives, talks will describe in detail what is being observed/studied and what kind of data is produced and how it can be used. The Symposium will combine these overview talks with several workshops. The workshops will be conducted under the umbrella of the Symposium and have a common scheme. The workshops we help to facilitate discussion and provide a more productive working group environment to maximize the scientific output of the Symposium. The workshops are targeted at discussing new ideas in a stimulating environment. We in particular encourage active participation of early career scientists and students. Participants are also encouraged to present relevant results in the workshops as part of talks or in discussion. At the end of the last day, the Symposium participants will convene together in a short plenary session, in which the results of the workshops will be discussed.

OVERVIEW

CCAPP hosts annual symposia that feature local research activities in the context of broad scientific themes. The motif of this years CCAPP Symposium 2011, to be held from April 4-6, will be "Unravelling the Nature of the Universe with Current and Future Datasets".

The Symposium will summarize through a series of invited overview talks the fundamental physics questions that are being address with current and upcoming experiments and surveys. Besides the focus on the scientific objectives, talks will describe in detail what is being observed/studied and what kind of data is produced and how it can be used.

The Symposium will combine these overview talks with several workshops. The workshops will be conducted under the umbrella of the Symposium and have a common scheme. The workshops we help to facilitate discussion and provide a more productive working group environment to maximize the scientific output of the Symposium. The workshops are targeted at discussing new ideas in a stimulating environment. We in particular encourage active participation of early career scientists and students.

Participants are also encouraged to present relevant results in the workshops as part of talks or in discussion.

At the end of the last day, the Symposium participants will convene together in a short plenary session, in which the results of the workshops will be discussed. This summary session is targeted at bringing workshops to a meaningful conclusion and kick starting new collaborative efforts.

The Center for Cosmology and AstroParticle Physics (CCAPP) at The Ohio State University (OSU) is hosting the Symposium in Columbus, Ohio at the Physics Research Building - Rooms M2015 and M2035.
