The Third Aegean Summer School is devoted to the dark matter and dark energy of the Universe. The main objective of the School is to bring together Physicists from different fields like Astrophysics, High Energy Physics, Relativity and Cosmology and in a relaxed and stimulated atmosphere discuss the new ideas and developments in the search of dark matter and dark energy. It is also aimed at introducing postgraduate students and young researchers to this very challenging issue of Astrophysics and Cosmology.

The topics which will be covered are: Particle Physics and Dark Matter, Particle Candidates for Dark Matter, Structure Formation and Dark Matter, Dark Energy in the Cosmic Background, Cosmological Perturbations and Dark Energy, Cosmological Models for Dark Energy, Large Scale Structure and Cosmological Parameters, Cosmological Parameters from Galaxy Clusters, Supernovae Observations and Dark Energy, Modified Gravity Theories from Dark Matter and Dark Energy, Dark Energy in String Theory.

The morning sessions will consist of mainly review talks on major subjects of the field, while in the afternoon sessions short talks will be given on current research topics.

Those graduate and postgraduate students interested in attending the school are requested to send a short CV and one recommendation letter to the School's Secretary Ms. Evelyn Pappa, email: evepappa@central.ntua.gr. Financial support will be provided for a limited number of accepted applicants.

The School is organized by the Physics Department of the National Technical University of Athens, and supported by the Physics Department of King's College, University of London, the Institute of Cosmology and Gravitation, University of Portsmouth, the Physics and Astronomy Department, University of Tennessee, Ministry of National Education and Religious Affairs, Prefecture of Chios, Municipality of Chios.
