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.

Special Issue on Dark Matter & Modified Gravity

Studies in History and Philosophy of Modern Physics
Deadline: 1 DECEMBER 2019

INTERDISCIPLINARY PERSPECTIVES ON DARK MATTER & MODIFIED GRAVITY
