Location:  Trieste, Italy

The conference is aimed at combining different perspectives on how to test the fundamental structure of spacetime. More specifically, while the core of the conference will focus on quantum gravity models and their possible phenomenological tests, we shall also explore methodological and conceptual aspects of this endeavour by having two dedicated sessions involving also philosophers of science.

This mix will be facilitated by applying a novel structure to the talks: there will be 3-5 talks grouped under a general theme, followed by an open debate on the main issues related to it. There will be also two session of short talks on related issues.
