The Conference focuses on causality and non-locality in physics, and the insurgence of situations where it appears that causality can be violated, with emphasis on their relation with time machines. There are three main objectives before this conference:
The search for a theory which would unite the insights of general relativity with those of quantum theory, a theory of quantum gravity, has now lasted the better part of a century. Although a number of promising candidate theories have emerged (string theory and loop quantum gravity being the most prominent), a large array of conceptual, formal and methodological issues are still unresolved.
We are pleased to invite postgraduate researchers, from inside and outside the UK, to exchange ideas on the mathematical aspects of relativistic quantum physics. A special focus will be given to relativistic quantum information, a relatively young field which combines techniques from quantum field theory, quantum gravity, quantum information and quantum optics.
Our invited speakers reflect the diversity of areas covered:
Prof. Bob Coecke (Oxford)
Dr. Ivette Fuentes (Nottingham)
Dr. Etera Livine (Lyon)
Prof. Tim Ralph (Brisbane)
