On 23 – 24 January 2023, Dr Steffen Gielen and Dr Jean-Luc Lehners will lead a residential Theo Murphy scientific meeting on the topic of the quantum origin of spacetime.

Quantum theory describes the behaviour of matter, but could it also be instrumental in explaining the structure of space and time? This meeting will explore how the quantum properties of spacetime can change our understanding of the foundations of cosmology. The discussion will also focus on how the relationship between quantum theory and spacetime could be tested observationally.

This meeting is intended for researchers in relevant fields and can only be attended in-person. Advance registration is essential. This is a residential meeting held at Sedgebrook Hall, Northampton. Participants will need to book their own accommodation with the venue.
