International Conference on the cosmic microwave background radiation

The CMB Foregrounds conference will bring together almost 80 international researchers to analyze the current state of research which is trying to detect primordial gravitational waves. 

Starting date: 15 Oct, 2018
End date: 18 Oct, 2018
Location: La Laguna Gran Hotel. La Laguna. Tenerife
Organizer: IAC

The relevance of these waves is that they should have been generated only a fraction of a second after the Big Bang, and if detected they would be a strong support to the standard model of modern cosmology. In this meeting the new maps obtained with the QUIJOTE experiment will be presented. They show the high degree of complexity in the physical processes which produce the radio emission of our Galaxy in the microwave range; synchrotron radiation and the anomalous microwave emission. Understanding these emissions is necessary to be able to remove this veil which tends to hide the radiation reaching us from the primordial universe.
