Three decades after its proposal, inflation has become part of the standard framework for early universe cosmology.The predictions of the simplest inflationary models have been confirmed and experimental activity to improve over these results is ongoing. Efforts are moving ahead to find two other signatures, tensor modes, and nongaussianity, which would substantially increase our understanding of the early universe. In addition, significant advances have been made on the theory side.

The goal of the Pre-Planckian Inflation Workshop is to review the current experimental and theoretical status of inflation and to discuss directions for future theoretical development.

The workshop is sponsored by the William I. Fine Theoretical Physics Institute and organized in cooperation with the School of Physics and Astronomy, University of Minnesota.

Participation in the event is by invitation only. We welcome participation of graduate students. Please contact us with any questions by email at inflation2011 (@)
