Second Hermann Minkowski Meeting on the Foundations of Spacetime Physics, Albena, Bulgaria

The Second Hermann Minkowski Meeting on the Foundations of Spacetime Physics will commemorate the 110th anniversary of the publication of Minkowski’s lecture “Space and Time” in 1909, which presented the novel ideas of the four-dimensional physics of spacetime. In addition to technical papers on areas related to Minkowski’s contributions to the foundations of spacetime physics and on modern ramifications of his ideas, contributions on closely related topics will be also welcome.

In addition to talks and poster sessions, special tea/coffee hours will be included in the program to stimulate more informal discussions among the participants. For this reason we encourage interested colleagues to attend the meeting even if they do not plan to give a talk.

Contributed papers in the form of extended abstracts from one to two standard pages should be emailed by Thursday, January 31, 2019 to minkowski2019[AT]minkowskiinstitute.org. Submissions will be reviewed and notification of acceptance will be given by Friday, March 1, 2019.
