Where is that information to be found? You have inside sources? :wink:
When I go to the link you gave us, I don't find anything about the invited speakers. The program page is under construction, it says.

Thanks---a pulldown menu. So let me sample the list of invited speakers:
#

Abhay Ashtekar
Penn State Uiversity, USA,
#

Charles Hellaby
Cape Town University, South Africa,
#

Sumit R. Das
University of Kentucke, USA,
#

Fred Cooperstock
University of Vitoria, Canada,
#

William G. Unruh
University of Bristh Columbia, UBC, Canada,
#

Lawrence M. Krauss
Case Western Reserve, USA,
#

Roberto Percacci
Scuola Internaziole Superiore di Studi Avanzati/International School for Advaced Studies - SISSA,
#

This shows a strong interest in cosmology! And where applicable shows openness to both non-string and string approaches. We know Percacci from his work on Martin Reuter's asymptotic safety (non-string) approach to quantum gravity. Unruh, of the *Unruh effect*, has two Loop-related papers though it's not his main focus. Hellaby is straight cosmology---we've discussed this http://arxiv.org/abs/astro-ph/0603637 interesting paper of his in Cosmo forum. Ashtekar is one of the founders of LQG and currently working in Loop cosmology. On the other hand, Sumit R. Das' research at least prior to 2007 mainly dealt with stringy matters---in the past two years he has focused on cosmology. Krauss is a straight cosmologist. Cooperstock, again cosmology.
