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. This workshop is partially supported by the DoE Office of Science (Office of High Energy Physics).
