An accurate measurement of the Hubble constant, H0, is critical for the determination of all other cosmological parameters. The most recent determinations have revealed a >4σ discrepancy between the local value of H0, based on the distance ladder approach with Cepheid stars and type Ia supernovae, and the determination from the cosmic microwave background. If this holds up, then Lambda-CDM is not the complete model of the Universe. Any independent effort to better constrain this parameter constitutes an invaluable contribution to our understanding of the expansion history of the Universe.
This hybrid in-person/virtual workshop will bring together people working on determinations of H0 to address the following topics:
There will be two seminar-like presentations per day (typically during the morning) with plenty of time for discussion. All presentations will be streamed live (https://tum-conf.zoom.us/j/61103186344 ; Passcode: 024540) to allow a large number of virtual participants. In-person participation is also possible but is strictly limited to the maximum capacity of the seminar room in accordance with local health regulations (updated on a regular basis).
Registration is free but required for both in-person and virtual participants.
