The 69th Lindau Nobel Laureate Meeting

Additional topics to be discussed include dark matter and the standard model of cosmology as well as gravitational waves, which could be detected in 2016 for
the first time. This year, 600 young scientists from all over the world will meet 42 Nobel Laureates, including some of the most recent recipients of the Nobel Prize (find the complete list of participating laureates here).
