     * (Two weeks earlier, for beyond-GR rather than inhomogeneous-GR cosmology:
      1-5 July @Warsaw - Beyond General Relativity, Beyond
      Cosmological Standard Model
      https://indico.cern.ch/event/778333/ .)

     Copernicus University

Inhomogeneous Cosmologies IV

During 14-19 July 2019 we are gathering experts in inhomogeneous
cosmology for a small workshop of about 30 participants at Nicolaus
Copernicus University in Torun, the town where Copernicus was born. We
wish to map out the most promising directions for analytical,
numerical and observational investigations aimed to take into account
both structure formation and cosmological expansion within the
constraints of general relativity. Can we clarify the physics present
in the relativistic cosmology software now being developed? Are the
calculations artificially constrained or are they fully relativistic?
Can we achieve accurate postdiction of cosmological observations and
follow up by making predictions for the upcoming decade of new major
survey projects? We expect vigorous, constructive debate between
"one-percenters" and "order-unity" proponents, and practical hands-on
sessions of free-licensed inhomogeneous cosmology software packages.
