Remote and Kavli IPMU, Kashiwa, Japan

Important Deadlines:

  • Abstract submission: 2022 February 5
  • Registration Deadline: 2022 March 1


Going into the 2020s, cosmic large scale structure will be mapped with increasing detail by the next generation of observational facilities operating at various wavelengths (radio, optical, infra-red) and exploiting various techniques. Meanwhile, theory and simulations are increasing in sophistication in their ability to describe large-scale structure. These advances could potentially allow greater constraints into cosmological parameters and theories of galaxy evolution.

The goal of this meeting at the Kavli Institute for the Physics and Mathematics of the Universe (IPMU) is to prepare for new and upcoming spectroscopic surveys such as DESI, Subaru PFS and MOONS, which will probe the cosmic web and large-scale structure at unprecedented target densities and redshifts, and to bring together a diverse group of researchers working on the cosmic web, its various tracers, and their embedded galaxies from both observational and theoretical perspectives. This will be an opportunity for researchers who may not usually encounter each other to interact. 

Topics to be discussed include, but are not limited to:

  • Characterizing and modeling the cosmic web
  • Observational surveys of the cosmic web, ongoing and planned
  • The growth of protoclusters into clusters
  • Statistical measurements beyond 2-point
  • Galaxy evolution in the context of the cosmic web
  • Constrained realization modeling of large-scale structure
  • The intergalactic medium tracing the cosmic web
  • Exploiting cosmic voids for cosmology



This will be a primarily remote meeting with the time zones centered around Japan/Asia, with the live sessions running from 0:00-9:00 UTC. Presentation videos will be uploaded promptly to YouTube and a Slack channel used to allow asynchronous discussion.

We anticipate allowing limited in-person participation at Kavli IPMU, tentatively only for participants travelling from within Japan. For participants outside Japan, please do not plan on travelling to IPMU as the Japanese government currently does not allow entry for non-residents from abroad.
