Probing the spacetime fabric: from concepts to phenomenology

Description

The conference is aimed at combining different perspectives on how to test the fundamental structure of spacetime. More specifically, while the core of the conference will focus on quantum gravity models and their possible phenomenological tests, we shall also explore methodological and conceptual aspects of this endeavor by having two dedicated sessions involving also philosophers of science. This mix will be facilitated by applying a novel structure to the talks: there will be 3-5 talks grouped under a general theme, followed by an open debate on the main issues related to it.
The conference will be mainly sponsored by the John Templeton Foundation grant: Probing the spacetime fabric.
