The aim of this workshop is to bring together experts in cosmology and gravitational wave astrophysics, to discuss future possibilities of probing fundamental physics and the early universe in the light of the recent detection of gravitational waves and the preparation of the eLISA mission. The first three days are dedicated to a general discussion of recent developments in gravitational wave physics. The last two days will feature a more eLISA-focused discussion.

Topics:
Phase Transitions
Inflation and Beyond
Black Hole Binaries
Testing General Relativity
Dark Matter
Structure Formation
Standard Sirens
Topological Defects
eLISA Status and Updates
