First Spring School in Particle Physics and Philosophy
March 16-25, 2001 at “Maria in der Aue” near Wuppertal
The Interdisciplinary Center for Science and Technology Studies (IZWT) at the University of Wuppertal invites applications for participation at the 1st International Spring School on Particle Physics and Philosophy. The aim of this school is to train the next generation of researchers from physics, philosophy and history of science in a borderline-area relevant for all three disciplines. Lectures and discussion sessions will be given by world-renowned scientists and scholars of these three fields, and will be held in English.
The spring school will start on March 16th, 2011, and end on March 25th, 2011. The venue is a quiet conference hotel in the countryside close to Wuppertal. Accommodation, meals and lectures will all take place at this venue, so as to establish an optimal environment for discussion and learning.
We invite students at the master and doctoral level, as well as post-docs from physics, philosophy, and history of science to apply for participation; the aim is to have a group of around 30, in appropriate fraction over the three fields.
The deadline for applications is December 15, 2010. For further details, including details about the topics and lecturers, as well as the details of how to apply, please see http://www.springschool-2011.uni-wuppertal.de.
Please circulate this message as widely as possible; we are looking forward to hearing from you, and to a truly interdisciplinary exchange on the intersection of physics, philosophy and history of science!
