The Institute for Gravitation and the Cosmos at Penn State will hold a focus session on “The Nature of Time in Fundamental Science” on November 9th and 10th. These sessions bring together leading experts on a sharply defined area from all over the world for summary talks and extended discussions. The goal is to bring out inter-connections between complementary but distinct lines of thought to advance the area in novel directions.
In this session, the issue of time will be discussed from the perspective of foundations of quantum mechanics, cosmology, general relativity and quantum gravity. There is no registration fee but those interested in participating must send an e-mail to Randi Neshteruk <rxh1 AT psu.edu> as
soon as possible. To enhance discussions, the number of participants is limited to 35.
