Title: "Introduction To Loop Quantum Cosmology"

In this talk I give an introduction into the field of loop quantum cosmology (LQC) with an emphasis on the conceptual part of the theory. First, I recapitulate general relativity in the canonical formulation, especially in the loop framework and its quantization (LQG). Afterwards, I turn to a symmetry reduced version, namely cosmology, where the classical as well as the quantized version is presented. Several phenomena occuring in LQC are discussed and finally I introduce effective theory in LQC.
