Emmy Noether Workshop: The Structure of Quantum Space Time

Conference Date: 
Monday, November 18, 2019 (All day) to Friday, November 22, 2019 (All day)
Scientific Areas: 
Quantum Fields and Strings
Quantum Gravity


Understanding the small-scale structure of spacetime is one of the biggest challenges faced by  modern theoretical physics. There are many different attempts to solve this problem and they reflect the diversity of approaches to quantum gravity. This workshop will bring together researchers from a wide range of quantum gravity approaches and give them an opportunity to exchange ideas and gain  new insights.

Funding for this workshop has been provided by the Simons Foundation.
