Dear colleagues,

we are organizing a three-day workshop entitled Inflation and Geometry, in June at the Institut d’Astrophysique de Paris:

This workshop aims to explore the recent developments in the field of multifield inflation, with special emphasis on the role of the geometry of the field space manifold. There will be talks on selected topics and time for informal discussions, with the aim of favouring interactions and exchange of ideas amongst participants.

The workshop is supported by the ERC grant GEODESI, there is no registration fee, and the event will take place during the full three days.

Topics to be covered include:

– Non-standard attractors in curved field space

– Inflation with non-geodesic motion

– Geometrical destabilization of inflation

– Embeddings in high-energy physics

– Implications of the swampland conjectures

– (P)reheating in curved field space

We decided to keep the number of participants limited to favour interactions. If you wish to give a talk, or simply to attend the workshop, please e-mail one of the organisers before the 5th of May 2019.

Please feel free to circulate this announcement among your colleagues.

Best regards,

Sebastien Renaux-Petel, Jacopo Fumagalli, John Ronayne, Lucas Pinol, Chantal Le Vaillant
