Rotman Summer Institute: Philosophy of Cosmology

The Rotman Institute of Philosophy will host a summer institute in philosophy of cosmology, June 11-20, 2018. The Institute will focus primarily on two issues:  first, the role of simulations in cosmology, and second, the status of singularity theorems in light of proposals from quantum gravity.  Graduate students and junior scholars are encouraged to apply by March 30. Please visit the Institute website for further details.  This event is sponsored in part by a grant from the John Templeton Foundation, awarded to Chris Smeenk and Jim Weatherall.

International Summer School in Philosophy of Physics, Split, 16-21 July 2018

Call for Applications

2018 Split Summer School in the Philosophy of Physics

The Chimera of Entropy

Split, Croatia, 16-21 July 2018

http://mapmf.pmfst.unist.hr/~sokolic/doku.php

Entropy is among the most important but also most perplexing concepts in physics. It is also a polymorphic concept: introduced in thermodynamics, we now find it in statistical mechanics, quantum mechanics, information theory, and black hole physics, to name just the most obvious. In this summer school, we will systematically explore the various concepts of entropy as they are used in state-of-the-art physics and evaluate their philosophical interpretations.

The summer school will consist in lectures and research talks. Participants will have the opportunity to present their work in short talks. We would like to emphasize that we are happy to accept scholars at any stage of their career (from students to senior faculty) as participants.
