Microscopic models of Quantum Spacetime
" Microscopic models of Quantum Spacetime " is a 5-days informal, technical workshop at Utrecht
University, discussing some recent developments in our
theoretical understanding of the fundamental, physical nature of spacetime at the Planck scale.
The main themes of the workshop are loop quantum gravity and spin foam models, simplicial quantum gravity and discrete geometry, group field theories, non- commutative geometry.
Sponsor of the event is FQXi- Foundational Questions Institute
The workshop will consist of 2-3 long talks per day. Plenty of time will be set aside
for in-depth discussion and interaction among participants, including a
social event on Wednesday night. The idea is to make this a pleasurable occasion for debating hot, if technical, open issues in the field,
in a relaxed and informal atmosphere.
will be the ITF rooms 401 and 403 in the Minnaert Building on the Uithof campus of Utrecht
