We believe the time is right for researchers in different areas to share their insights into "Life Beyond the Gaussian". The workshop will be based on the theme of cosmological non-Gaussianity; we focus on three separate but connected areas:

  • primordial non-Gaussianity theory
  • non-Gaussianity from the non-linear evolution of structure: theory
  • observations of non-Gaussianity in the cosmic microwave background and large-scale structure.


Our aim is to bring together researchers to exchange ideas -- of a theoretical and observational nature -- in the course of an intensive three-day workshop.

The workshop "Life Beyond the Gaussian" will take place at the Kavli Institute for Cosmological Physics at the University of Chicago, from June 6th to the 8th, 2007.
