Organizers Jungjai Lee (Chair, Daejin University) Hyun Seok Yang (CQUeST, Sogang University) John J. Oh (National Institute for Mathematical Sciences) Hyung Won Lee (Inje University) Jin-Ho Cho (Hanyang University) Introduction The subject of the winter school will be focused on quantum gravity and emergent spacetime and related problems in cosmology such as dark energy and inflation. The purpose of the school is to draw worldwide experts together into pedagogical lectures and intensive discussions about the subject. Throughout this winter school, we want to find the base of novel theories and radical new ideas in the circle of contemporary theoretical physics and introduce them to young physicists and other scientists on the related line of research. The interaction with participants would stimulate to go beyond the horizon of intellectual bias List of speakers 1. Subodh Patil (CERN, Switzerland) 2. Paul McFadden (Perimeter Institute, Canada) 3. Alexander Schenkel (University of Wuppertal, Germany) 4. Sergei D. Odintsov (ICE/CSIC and IEEC Bellaterra, Spain) 5. Seokcheon Lee (KIAS, Korea) TOPICS 1. Subodh Patil Topics in String Cosmology 2.
