The workshop aims to bring together researchers involved in the study of non-Gaussianities in Cosmology. Its goal will be to review and settle on firm theoretical grounds the non-Gaussian effects of the two most important cosmological probes to constraint primordial non-Gaussianities, the Cosmic Microwave Background anisotropies and the Large-Scale Structures. A proper assessment of the ability of these cosmological observables to constrain primordial non-Gaussianities is particularly relevant in preparation of the upcoming Planck mission and future galaxy and weak lensing surveys. Particular importance will be given to the developments of a full treatment of the intrinsic non-Gaussian effects in the Cosmic Microwave Background anisotropies and to the theoretical and numerical studies of the effect on clustering of biased objects in the Large-Scale Structures as a probe of non-Gaussianities.
