In the wake of recent experimental results, cosmology is rapidly evolving into a mature science, prone to precision tests of models and ideas. In the long run, it is expected that early universe cosmology will become the essential testing ground for ideas in the quantum gravity realm, such as string theory. At the same time, the development of cosmological models from string theory is still an art in its infancy. The purpose of this workshop is to put together a selected number of world experts to discuss the latest directions in such theoretical endevours, from string-inspired inflationary model-building to fundamental questions linking holography and cosmology.
