This workshop in organized in the framework of the Portuguese participation in the
European Science Foundation's COSLAB Network (Cosmology in the Laboratory).
Three international lecturers will provide the Portuguese scientific community
(researchers and students alike) with an overview of the involved concepts:
Arttu Rajantie (Cambridge University)
Ray Rivers (Imperial College)
Paul Shellard (Cambridge University)
Local contributions will give an overview of COSLAB-related activities in
Portugal. It also aims to prepare Portuguese
members of COSLAB to forthcoming COSLAB workshops, notably
Defects from Phase Transitions: Bilbao, Spain (10-16 July 2003)
Testing Defect Formation Theories: Vietri, Italy (11-13 Setember 2003)
The meeting is supported by the Centre for Astrophysics and Department of Applied
Mathematics of the University of Porto, and by the Astroparticle Detectors
Group of the Centre for Nuclear Physics of the University of Lisbon.
