14 - 17 May 2018, Fifth International Conference on the Nature and Ontology of Spacetime, Albena, Bulgaria

Date: 14 - 17 May 2018
Location: Albena, Bulgaria
Deadline: Wednesday 28 February 2018

The spacetime conferences bring together physicists and philosophers and provide a forum where aspects and implications of the nature and ontology of spacetime are discussed.

To mark the 110th anniversary of Hermann Minkowski's groundbreaking lecture "Space and Time" the main theme of the Fifth International Conference on the Nature and Ontology of Spacetime will be the nature of spacetime - whether spacetime should be regarded merely as an abstract mathematical notion modelling an evolving present or spacetime represents a block universe or a growing block universe.

In spite of the focus of the fifth spacetime conference being on the main theme, the Scientific Organizing Committee invites papers from physicists and philosophers on any topic related to the nature and ontology of spacetime.
