We have an active program of visitors to our Institute. In keeping with our mission, we encourage and support visits from scientists who have interests, or who wish to develop interests, in several of the areas in which we do research. This helps the cross-fertilization that we find important for advances in Cosmological Physics. If you would like to visit our Institute, please contact any of our members or fill in a Visitor application form.
- Short term
Visits are range from 3 days to 2 weeks.
- Long term
Visits are anything over 2 weeks; these require special university approval and thus take a longer time for approval.
Visits for those invited to speak at either one of our regular forums or for special seminars. Such visits are usually for a day or two and we typically cover travel expenses (sharing economy class airfare among institutions to the extent possible) and up to two nights lodging.
