Spacetime Functionalism Conference

This is a past event.

Spacetime Functionalism holds that spacetime is spacetime by virtue of the role it plays with respect to other physics. It promises to help with certain interpretational puzzles, including some of those arising in quantum gravity. But the exact kind of functionalism involved, the extent to which it is helpful and the role itself are all contested. This conference aims to make progress on these questions.

Keynote Speakers:

Christian Wuthrich (Geneva)
David Albert (Columbia)
Tushar Menon (Cambridge)
Dave Baker (Michigan Ann Arbor)
Eleanor Knox (King’s College London)
Jim Weatherall (UC Irvine)
Katie Robertson (Birmingham)

Sunday, April 2 at 12:00 a.m.

10th Floor of the Cathedral of Learning, 1008 4200 Fifth Avenue
