Quantum Time > Call For Papers

28-29 March 2014
Center for Philosophy of Science
817 Cathedral of Learning
University of Pittsburgh
Pittsburgh, PA USA

We welcome submissions from both philosophers and physicists.

  • Deadline: October 15, 2013
  • Notification By: November 10, 2013
  • Submission Requirement: 1000-word abstract
  • Email submissions to: pittquantumtime14@gmail.com

Many of the problems of time in physics are old and well-known, and their morals for metaphysics have been explored. In this workshop, we propose to attack a newer problem: How is quantum time special? More specifically, this workshop will explore the ways in which quantum theory leads to new insights about the nature of time, and how thinking about the role of time may lead to insights about quantum theory. Topics may include (although they are not limited to) the problem of time in quantum gravity, quantum time observables, temporal symmetry violation, and the unitary and non-unitary implementability of time evolution in quantum theory. We are holding an open call for papers presenting fresh new ideas.
