It is a pleasure to announce the forthcoming workshop
The Quantum and the Cosmos, Trieste, 23-26 March 2020
Within the framework of QTSpace, the workshop will bring together experts in quantum mechanics, cosmology and quantum gravity, to discuss questions like: Does gravity need to be quantum? What are possible routes to quantum gravity? What are possible quantum effects in cosmology? Does quantum gravity eliminate space-time singularities like a big bang? Is space-time relational? Can alternatives to quantum mechanics be tested by cosmological observations?
Registration open till January 31st, 2020.
The workshop will take place at: Savoia Excelsior Palace, Riva del Mandracchio 4, Trieste.
