Idea and Motivation
The aim of the workshop is to bring together physicists and philosophers of physics for a meeting focused on fundamental issues in physics relating to reduction and emergence. Particpants will include researchers with expertise in string theory, statistical physics, condensed matter physics, and renormalisation. The workshop will
combine consideration of issues in contemporary physics research with discussion of longstanding philosophical questions, such as the nature of scientific explanations and the relationship between different
systems of physical laws.
The workshop will be held in Munich over two days (21st June - 22nd June). Submission of contributed papers are welcomed from researchers with interests in discussing reduction and emergence in physics from a foundational perspective .
All researchers and students wishing to attend the workshop should register by emailing Karim.Thebault@lrz.uni-muenchen.de by the 1st of May.
