The European Dark Energy Network is a Europe-wide network of theoretical and experimental researchers working on one of the major puzzles in contemporary physics: the nature of the "dark energy" responsible for the acceleration in the rate of expansion of the universe indicated by many different observations in cosmology.

This workshop will review the current observational constraints on dark energy as well as the range of theoretical proposals which attempt to explain it. A full day will be dedicated to the discussion of possible future observational strategies for constraining dark energy (supernovae, weak lensing, baryon oscillations...)

The meeting will take place at Jussieu, in central Paris.

Review Speakers:

C. Wetterich (Heidelberg), R. Maartens (Portsmouth), R. Pain (Paris), R. Bean (Cornell), D. Eisenstein (Arizona), A. Blanchard (Toulouse), J. Garriga (Barcelona)
