During last few years we have witnessed rapid developments in cosmology, both in theory and experiments. Especially, with the recent PLANCK data our understanding on the universe is facing even more refinements than ever. Moreover, with the planned number of future experiments on the cosmic microwave background, large scale structure, gravitational waves and so on, our view on cosmology and gravity will be further developed continuously. The aim of the workshop is to promote stimulating informal and intensive discussions among the participants and to initiate possible collaborations. In addition to research talks, there will be ample time for discussions.
