We are bringing together a focused group of cosmologists to discuss aspects of Large Scale Structure in light of Dark Matter physics. Relevant topics are, cosmological simulations of LSS, the impact of baryonic physics on dark matter halo properties, matching DM simulations to observations in future surveys, Effective Field Theory of LSS and other approximation methods, methods beyond the classic N-body simulations, models beyond CDM, voids, and upcoming surveys (LSST, Euclid etc).

The format allows for a relaxed atmosphere with amble time for discussion and exchange of ideas.
