Dear Friends,

The 2nd International Meeting on Gravitation and Cosmology will be held in
Santa Clara, Cuba, from May 29 to June 1, 2006.

Please visit http://cosmologia.mfc.uclv.edu.cu/ for details.

**********

In Las Villas Central University, a young team of researchers works
on scalar-tensor theories and their connections with geometry and
cosmology. They are organizing the present meeting with the advice of
several leading scientists in these fields. The aim of this workshop
is to encourage the development of research in the fields of
gravitation and cosmology in the Caribbean region and beyond. The
meeting will focus on the role of scalar fields (moduli, dilaton,
inflaton, Jordan-Brans-Dicke, quintessence, tachyons, phantom energy,
etc.) in gravity theories, emphasizing their application to
cosmology. Concerning cosmology, we welcome the discussion of
different models, inspired by unifying theories (like superstring
theory) or by scalar-tensor theories, emphasizing models with minimal
and non-minimal coupling as well as tachyonic scalars. Comparison
with observations is also of interest.

There will be a parallel session on Astrobiology and Astrophysics.

Las Villas Central University is located near the city of Santa Clara, at the
centre of the country (3 hours from Havana). It is one of the three
largest and most important universities in Cuba.

Santa Clara is a small and quiet city of about 300.000 inhabitants. It is one
of the most important cultural centres in the country, its most
important attractions for tourism being the keys along the coast to the north
and the Escambray mountains to the south. The city is famous as the
site of the last (definitive) battle leading to the triumph of the Cuban
revolution, which took place in the last days of December 1958. That
battle was conducted by Che Guevara who died some years later (October 1968)
fighting in Bolivia. At present his mortal remains lie in a
mausoleum in Santa Clara.


**********

Hope to see some of you there,

Susha
