For Masters students, Ph.D. students, and postdocs
22 Jul 2018 - 27 Jul 2018
Location: Chicago, Illinois
Funding Area: Natural Sciences
This is the first in a series to be held every two years in the Midwest, primarily drawing on local faculty, but open to students from across the globe. The themes this year include quantum gravity, the physics of the observer, quantum theory, and experiment in fundamental physics. Students will study these foundational topics from the points of view of philosophy of physics, metaphysics, physics, and history of science.
