The Thanu Padmanabhan Centre for Cosmology and Science Popularization (CCSP) at Shree Guru Gobind Singh Tricentenary University (SGT) University hosted a three-day conference, COSMOLOGY@CCSP_1, in hybrid mode, on the topic, ‘Current Status of Cosmology’. The symposium’s objective was to bring together the pioneers and best minds in cosmology under one roof, to discuss the latest developments in this field and enlighten young cosmology researchers.
Cosmology, the study of the beginnings and evolution of the Universe, has witnessed significant advances in the last few decades, especially in the specialised domain of observational cosmology. COSMOLOGY@CCSP_1 saw both world-renowned experts and talented young cosmologists engage in fruitful discussions to achieve its ultimate goal – that of promoting research in science and familiarising the subject for today’s generation in cosmology.
Among the prominent professors who took part in the conference were Naresh Dadhich, Sudhakar Panda, L. Sriramkumar, S. Tsujikawa, Leandros Perivolaropoulos and Salvatore Capozziello.
Sharing his views, Dr. Mohammad Sami, Professor and Director, CCSP, said, “The Centre for Cosmology and Science Popularization, which was recently established at SGT University, is a premier research centre which is focused on research at the intersection of cosmology and high-energy physics. And to have the opportunity to host COSMOLOGY@CCSP_1 has been a privilege, as the conference will help CCSP prove its credentials in the field of cosmology and related sciences. For, I believe that if the standard of research is high, that will be reflected in the quality of teaching.”
