This workshop intends to bring together about 15 experts on the subject of observational measures of the Cosmological Density Parameters with a number of interested astronomers and students, in order to discuss the most recent developments in the field. It will be restricted to about 60 participants. Its organization will stress free discussion and exchange of ideas.
In addition to its interest to the international and Latin American astronomical communities, it should have the effect of stimulating Chilean astronomy and its links to the astronomical communities of other countries, in preparation for the tremendous opportunities that will be available in the country with the installation of several 8 m class optical and infrared telescopes and one or more world-class millimeter arrays.
The talks will present recent measurements, constraints, and/or inferences on the value of the cosmological density and energy parameters obtained from:
