Introduction
The Local Organizing Committee extends a warm invitation to all scientific colleagues to attend the « Invisible Universe International Conference: Toward a new cosmological paradigm » to be held in Paris, France from June 29 to July 3, 2009. Registration desk will open on the afternoon of Sunday 28th  June,  with  the  academic  program  commencing  on  the  morning of  Monday  June  29  and concluding on the evening of Friday July 3. The conference will take place at the Palais de l’Unesco in Paris.

After a quarter of century of intense research on dark matter and about ten years dedicated to the survey of dark energy, we hope this conference be at the crossroad in the worldwide debate which involves  these  two  open  problems,  dark  matter  and  dark  energy.  Both  problems  are  widely acknowledged as the premises for a renewal of revolutionary nature in our understanding of the physical world, a potential scientific revolution perhaps similar to that experienced at the beginning of the twentieth century. The scientific colloquium includes seven different thematic sessions which cover the whole set of research fields related to the subject of the conference: "Observational and experimental  aspects of  dark  energy  and  dark matter",  "Gravitation  and  cosmology  (Quantum gravity - M-Theory and cosmology)", "Inhomogeneous universes and backreaction", "Dark energy as a new energy component", "Dark matter candidates", "Dark energy and Dark Matter as modified gravity", "Theoretical and numerical aspects of cosmic structures and evolution". The Invisible Universe meeting will allow the arrival to Paris of a great number of eminent scientists. Several Nobel Prizes and Field Medals have already confirmed their participation. A large social program is planned during all the conference.

Academic Program
Under the guidance of the SOC, the LOC is actively working on the program. The scientific program will consist of Plenary Lectures to be held from June 29 to July 3 and Workshops which will involve parallel sessions of contributed talks and poster sessions from July 1 (afternoon) to July 3 (morning). The afternoon of July 3 will be devoted to the closing session. The updated program can be consulted on the website
