History for Physics: Quantum Gravity

Nov 28, 2019 at 9:00 to Nov 29, 2019 at 18:00
MPI for Gravitational Physics (Albert Einstein Institute) in Potsdam-Golm (Germany)

The Institute for Quantum Optics and Quantum Information Vienna (IQOQI-Vienna) and the Research Group Historical Epistemology of the Final Theory Program of the MPIWG in Berlin are organizing a series of symposia on the history for physics. This initiative aims at demonstrating the importance of the history of physics for current research in physics itself
To forward this agenda, the core format will be that of tandem talks. Each tandem will pair two talks, one given by a physicist on a current research topic, the other given by a historian of physics providing the historical context to this topic. Every tandem will be followed by a discussion. In addition to the tandems, there will be a panel discussion on the role of the history of physics in both research and in academic structures.
We furthermore call for contributed talks.
