XIII Workshop on New Physics in Space

logo.png (952×87)

Start time: November 28, 2016

Ends on:  December 1, 2016

Location: São Paulo, Brazil



The New Physics in Space Workshop is a traditional biannual event widely known in the astronomical and cosmological communities in Brazil for providing an exceptionally efficient platform for inter-disciplinary discussions among theoretical physicists, cosmologists and astronomers. Now in its 13th edition, it will be the venue for several talks on recent progress achieved in these fields. There will be poster sessions especially for new students in the area. Abstracts can be written and presentations can be given in English or Portuguese. There will be no registration fee.
