Applications Open for Symposium “History for Physics," Deadline July 31, 2019

Our Research Group "Historical Epistemology of the Final Theory Program" invites scholars to participate in and submit a contributed talk to the two-day symposiumLogos Blum “History for Physics: Quantum Foundations,” to be held on September 23–24, 2019 at the Faculty for Physics of the University of Vienna (Austria).

Jointly organized with the Institute for Quantum Optics and Quantum Information Vienna (IQOQI-Vienna), the "History for Physics" event series, running throughout 2019 and 2020, aims at demonstrating the importance of the history of physics within current research in physics itself.

We welcome contributed talks that are:

  • single history talks on quantum foundations
  • physics/history-tandems on quantum foundations
  • presentations of historically relevant papers in quantum foundations

The symposia will follow a tandem format. If you are interested in participating in tandem but do not have a partner, please contact the organizers who will try to match tandems together. We also highly welcome history talks by non-historians. Please send an abstract of your proposed talk, no longer than half an A4 page, to hfp@mpiwg-berlin.mpg.de

Deadline July 31, 2019
