Baryogenesis Confronts Experiment

November 7--9, 2007, University of Chicago

933 East 56th Street, Chicago, IL 60637

One of the most outstanding open questions in cosmology and particle physics
is the origin of the observed asymmetry between matter and anti-matter.
There are several scenarios which explain such an asymmetry, which rely on physics
that ranges from the QCD scale to energies close to the GUT scale.
In this workshop we will analyze these scenarios and discuss their possible
tests at present or near future experiments.
