The latest PI conference is titled Challenges for Early Universe Cosmology. The participants appear to be taking the theme seriously. Many talks have the title TBA. In the few talks I have watched, the speakers openly criticise the standard Big Bang cosmology, as if they had been doubtful about it for years. Turok invited people with interesting ideas to join in, but I advise against taking this suggestion seriously if you value your life. The smart move is to pretend you knew all about the insurmountable challenges facing the old world view, all along, with blatant disregard for historical analogy. They appear to have two token female speakers.
