Конференция к столетию великого советского физика:

The 2014 year marks the 100th anniversary of Yakov Zeldovich. The conference will commemorate his contribution to astronomy by concentrating on recent progress in cosmology and high energy astrophysics, the areas where his ideas laid the basis for revolutionary advances.

The conference "Zeldovich-100" devoted to key issues of modern cosmology, the formation of the large scale structure of the Universe, spectral distortions and angular fluctuations of CMB, theory of accretion and high energy astrophysics, which were among the main interests of Yakov Zeldovich during the last 25 years of his life. We wish to organize this conference on the basis of the Space Research Institute of the Russian Academy of Sciences (IKI) in Moscow from the 16th-20th of June 2014. We expect of the order of 200 participants, 120 from abroad and 80 from Russia. However, the hall accommodates up to 250-270 people.

  • Semyon Gershteyn (Protvino, Russia)

  • Eiichiro Komatsu (MPA, Garching)

  • Shri Kulkarni (Caltech, Pasadena)
