    11. astroparticle cosmology • constraints on axions and millicharged particles(MF, JE) • cosmological constraints on BSM particles(BA, MF, JE,NM) • astro-cosmology tests of lorentz invariance(JE, NM)

    12. baryogenesis/nucleosynthesis • use BBN constraints to test cosmological models(MS) • effect of varying constants on primordial abundances(MF) • leptogenesis/baryogenesis (MF, NM, SS) • non-thermal dark matter and baryogenesis(BA)

    13. cosmological Inflation • Higgs inflation(MF, MS) • alternatives to scalar field inflation(NM, MS) • string theory models of inflation(BA,MS,MF) • particle physics models of inflation(MS,MF,JE) • multifield inflation/curvatons(MF,MS)

    14. CMB, large scale structure, lensing • vector fields in the CMB(JA, EL, NM, MS) • primordial non-gaussianities(EL, MS, MF) • CMB polarization and 2nd order CMB effects(EL)

    15. dark energy and modified gravity • model building(NM, MS, SS) • modified gravity(JA, EL, MF) • use of data to constrain DE models(MF)

    16. dark matter • astroparticle candidates(JE, MF, NM) • SUSY dark matter(BA, JE, MF) • dark matter in string/M theory(BA) • direct/indirect detection (BA, MF, JE) • dark matter and galactic dynamics(MF, MS) • dark matter interacting with stars (MF) • tests of alternative to the DM theories especially strong and weak lensing (NM, MS, SS) • lorentz-violating dark matter and astrophysical/cosmological tests using astrophysical sources, such as AGN, GRB(EL, JA, NM)

    17. gravity and gravitational waves • GW signals from cosmological sources (MS,EL) • gravitational back-reaction(EL, MS) • GW propagation in models beyond GR(MS) • numerical GR in cosmology(EL)

    18. neutrino astrophysics • gravitationally induced leptogenesis and neutrinos(NM, SS) • searching for sterile neutrinos in the universe(NM)

    19. topological defects • cosmic strings & cosmic superstrings (MS,EL) (dynamics, cosmological/astrophysical consequences) • theory of high-gamma soliton interactions (EL) • string theory defects (D-matter) (NM, MS, SS) • astrophysical and cosmological searches for defects • in the universe (NM, MS)
