Call for Participation: Symmetries and Asymmetries in Physics, 6-8 July 2017

The Institute of Philosophy, Leibniz-University Hannover invites participation to the following three-day conference:

Symmetries and Asymmetries in Physics
6-8 July 2017
https://conferencehannover.wixsite.com/philphysics17

Symmetry considerations are at the heart of modern physics, both in quantum theory and in relativity, and discussions of the place of symmetries and asymmetries in physics occupy a central place in research in the foundations of physics. Issues that have attracted a significant amount of attention recently include the significance of gauge symmetries, the role of symmetry breaking, and questions concerning the empirical status of symmetry principles. Moreover, these issues also relate directly to traditional problems in the general philosophy of science, such as the status of the laws of nature or the relationships between mathematics, physical theory, and the world. This conference aims to contribute new ideas to these new and traditional problems.
