Introduction

Considering the magnitude and depth of its underlying physics, cosmology will continue to be one of the most exciting fields in physics and astronomy from both theoretical and experimental sides. Associated technologies necessary to explore deep space and early universe are always challenging but will drive new ideas which eventually give an impact on and change in our human life.

Institute for the Early Universe (IEU) was newly founded in December, 2008 at Ewha Womans University of Korea through the World Class University (WCU) Project of the Korean Ministry of Education, Science and Technology. IEU will conduct researches, participate in major space projects and eventually produce highly trained personnel to succeed and grow the community. We have Berkeley Center for Cosmological Physics (BCCP) as a great partner.
