The first annual meeting of the Origins of the Universe program will bring together three diverse groups of theoretical cosmologists, each addressing the history of the universe in their own ways. The themes of the presentations and discussions will include inflationary dynamics and its observational probes, bouncing cosmologies, and other proposals for geodesically past-complete classical models.
