2006 Aspen Winter Conference on Astrophysics
January 22-28, 2006

Cosmological Probes of Baryons and Dark Matter

This meeting aims to promote a fruitful dialog and interaction among people working in four related areas: Surveys of large-scale structure, the CMB, Gravitational lensing, and Cosmological 21cm fluctuations. We hope to foster a dialog among researchers in these fields in order to explore the deep ways in which these areas can complement each other in the quest to extract cosmological information. We seek a balanced workshop, which will include theory and observation, and current results, as well as exciting future plans and predictions.
