  • Description:

    Inflationary cosmology has become an integral part of the standard model of the early Universe. Inflationary models and other signatures of of the early-Universe physics have become stringently constrained by WMAP and Planck, as well as powerful new large-scale structure surveys. This workshop will discuss the theoretical, observational, and experimental aspects of inflation and primordial physics, interpreted broadly. We plan to gather 20-30 of the top experts in the field.

    A public lecture by Edward (Rocky) W. Kolb from the University of Chicago will also take place as a part of the workshop.
