This mini-workshop is focused on the physics of the very early universe. We aim to bring together cosmologists and particle physicists from different Chinese and international institutions for two days of inspiring discussions about key topics in the field, including
- What can we learn about the time before BBN?
- signatures of inflation and alternatives
- reheating, phase transitions and other sources of gravitational waves
The event is meant to be rather informal, with a lot of open discussions and the possibility to form new collaborations.
The precise times of beginning/end may be subject to small changes, but we plan to arrange them in a way that it is possible to visit the workshop form Beijing with only one night of accommodation in Nanjing.
There will be no fee, but we unfortunately cannot offer any financial support.
