The conference "Observing the Dark Universe with Euclid" was held 17-18 November 2009, with the main objective to present the Euclid mission to the international scientific community and to encourage feedback in advance of the ESA Cosmic Vision review process.

Euclid is an all-sky space mission designed to map the geometry of the dark Universe. Its primary objectives are the study of dark energy, dark matter, modified gravity and cosmic initial conditions.

At the two-day conference the Euclid science case for fundamental cosmology and legacy science were discussed, along with the current baseline for Euclid's payload, mission and ground segment. Synergies with related ground based and space based projects were also discussed.

The conference presentations are available for download in PDF format from the programme table below, through the links in the rightmost column.
