Quantum Gravity Effects in the (Early and Late) Universe
Abstract: Quantum Gravity at the origin of seeds of cosmic structure?
This meeting shows a our impatience for uncovering at long last any signal of unknown physics that might have a quantum gravitational origin. I will argue that the transition from a homogenous and isotropic state characterizing the mid-early parts of inflation ( i.e. the regime after sufficient e- folds of inflation have elapsed so that all traces of the pre-inflationary state are erased), to those eras, where the primordial inhomogeneities have appears might hold ins testing clues about the nature of quantum gravity

In the light of upcoming high-precision data from the Planck mission and possible trans-Planckian signatures encoded in eg the microwave background radiation, and in view of possible large-distance modifications of gravity and the accelearted expansion of the universe
