CFP: Early Career Workshop in History and Philosophy of Physics

Center for Philosophy of Science, University of Pittsburgh

Workshop dates: April 11-12, 2019
Submission deadline: January 15, 2019

Confirmed Keynote Speaker
Katherine Brading (Duke University)

The history and philosophy of physics is an intellectually diverse field which has become increasingly engaged with issues of interest to contemporary practicing physicists. One of the driving forces of this intellectual diversity has been early career philosophers, historians, and physicists exploring topics of foundational import in a broad range of sub fields of physics, such as cosmology and astrophysics, particle physics, quantum gravity, and condensed matter physics, alongside more traditional issues in nonrelativistic quantum mechanics and spacetime physics. In several cases, historians and philosophers have contributed directly to methodological debates taking place within the physics community.

Conference on Energy Conditions: York, 20-21 September 2018

Classical energy conditions were introduced as a means of codifying generic properties of matter in general relativity. They play key roles in the singularity theorems of Hawking and Penrose and in many other results of mathematical relativity. However, not all models of classical matter obey the pointwise energy conditions, and quantum fields cannot obey any of them. This workshop will address two main themes, bringing together experts in both areas: (a) the use of weakened energy conditions in classical relativity, (b) the Quantum Energy Inequalities that can be proved for various quantum field theory models, and their consequences. In addition, related topics in mathematical relativity and quantum field theory will be discussed.
