The focus of this workshop will be on different aspects of modern theoretical cosmology, the challenge to be consistent with experimental data and the necessary connection of cosmological theories with the quantum nature of the vacuum.

Topics include:

Cosmological models: modified gravities, f(R) theories and the like, non-local models
Possibility of Observing Modified Gravity in an Astrophysical Level (Neutron Stars)
Quantum Gravity
Quantum Cosmology and Loop Quantum Cosmology
Quantum vacuum and the Casimir Effect
The cosmological constant problem
Mathematical physics techniques for quantum vacuum studies
