Last CFP: The 20th UK and European Conference on Foundations of Physics


8-10 July 2020, La Sorbonne, Paris

Following the very successful previous editions at Utrecht (2018) and London (2016), this conference will bring philosophers of physics and physicists to a historic auditorium at the old Sorbonne in which Marie Curie gave her first lecture in 1906. 50 contributed talks and 5 invited speakers will cover the most diverse foundational aspects of physical theory and experiment. Parallel sessions will address the philosophy of quantum physics, space-time physics including quantum gravity, and statistical mechanics.

We invite submissions for contributed talks concerning the foundations of any domain of physical sciences. Please submit before February 1 a short plain-text abstract of 50-100 words and an extended abstract of 500-800 words with Easychair.
