Holography is one of the most powerful ideas to emerge in recent years from String/M-theory, and has led both to a radical new approach to quantum gravity, combined with a remarkably powerful calculational tool. It offers an exciting opportunity to tackle the long standing issues of the nature of the big-bang, the initial conditions and fate of the universe, which have recently begun to be explored.
We are now taking submissions for talk titles and abstracts. All are encouraged to apply. Registration is now open.

This open conference will bring together leading researchers working in cosmology, string theory and quantum gravity in order to understand and develop the implications of holography for the cosmology of the early universe. The program will end with a conference from July 22 - 25 to which outside participants are encouraged to apply.
