The aim of COSMONATA is to take advantage of the visits to the country by the Portuguese researchers working abroad during the holiday season to promote discussions between these and the local based researchers.
This year we will have three presentations and the usual "stand up cosmology" session intertwined with the Portuguese cream pastry.
