COSMO/CosPA 2010

September 27 - October 1 2010
Ichijo Hall and Koshiba Hall,
The University of Tokyo, Hongo, Tokyo, Japan

In 2010, COSMO and CosPA will be held at one time and at one place, Tokyo. The annual Cosmo International Conference on Particle Physics and Cosmology has been organized mostly in Europe and North America alternately and has served as a venue of interaction between cosmologists and particle physicists. The CosPA, International Symposium on Cosmology and Particle Astrophysics, is a series of conferences which was initiated in Taiwan and has been organized in Asia Pacific region annually. COSMO/CosPA 2010 will therefore be a conference where cosmologists, astrophysicists, and particle physicists will get together from all over the world. This conference is jointly hosted by the Research Center for the Early Universe (RESCEU) and the Institute for the Physics and Mathematics of the Universe (IPMU), the University of Tokyo with generous support from Dr. Masao Horiba, founder of the HORIBA Group.
