Description
The `Cosmological Constant Problemâ€™ is one of most outstanding problems in theoretical physics. It is a significant theme of many current areas of research, both at theoretical level, and at the experimental level, via the increasing observational evidence for dark energy. However, the way researchers address this problem varies tremendously between different scientific communities. The principal aim of this workshop is to bring together leading researchers in neighboring fields, to reach a common understanding of the nature of the problem, and to share the tools used in addressing it. In parallel, this workshop aims at understanding how the different directions in solving the Cosmological Constant Problem are related as well as searching for genuinely new approaches to tackle the question.
