The Beyond Spacetime project and the Rotman Institute of Philosophy, invite proposals to speak at the upcoming conference Cosmology and Quantum Gravity Beyond Spacetime, on the philosophy of quantum gravity and cosmology, to be held 10-12 November 2023 at Western University. Selected speakers will have accommodation and most meals provided.

We are planning for 10 speakers – a mix of philosophers and physicists – with commentators, over two and a half days (finishing at lunch on the 12th, to allow return travel that evening). The meeting will be capped at 30 people to encourage interaction.

The following have accepted invitations to speak:
* Feraz Azhar (Notre Dame)
* Jamee Elder (BHI/Harvard)
* Laurent Freidel (Perimeter)
* Sean Gryb (Groningen)
* Katie Mack (Perimeter)
* Lee Smolin (Perimeter)

We are open to any topics exploring philosophical aspects of quantum gravity and cosmology. We hope to foster new directions and new collaborations in the field.

Please submit a title, abstract, and CV to by June 30th, 2023.
