The many facets of Time

Wednesday 1st October 2014 @ 09:00

Nobel laureate, Professor Brian Josephson with Professors Nick Bingham, Henrik Jeldtoft Jensen and Fay Dowker from Imperial College London

This full-day 09:00 to 20:00 workshop aims at bringing together experts from diverse fields to a public discourse on the concept of time.

Time is fundamental to our understanding of the world, but our grasp of this familiar concept is far from complete. This workshop aims at bringing scholars from a broad range of disciplines to a public forum on the captivating yet elusive subject of time. Our invited speakers are experts on the study of time in very diverse fields ranging from mathematics, physics, and philosophy, to performing arts, linguistics, and psychology. Together we shall explore our interpretations of time from different perspectives. The programme is available here.

This event is open and free to the general public. To facilitate logistical arrangements, we would like to request all intended participants to register here.

The workshop is supported by a Public Engagement Grant (EPSRC Mathematics Platform grant EP/I019111/1) from theDepartment of Mathematics at Imperial College London.

Venue: Blackett LT1, Imperial College London
