IOP Topical Research Meeting on Time: A multidisciplinary meeting to explore the connections between time and physics.

This event aims to bring together researchers, from across all fields of physics, whose work is impacted by the illusive nature of time. From the astronomical to the quantum mechanical, from experiment to theory, we will explore measurement and perception of time, examine its philosophical implications, and question the origins and repercussions of the perceived arrow of time. Our evolving understanding of time continues to shape the way we study physics and we will examine many of the open questions still to be resolved.

We believe that this meeting gives a rare opportunity for scientists across multiple and often very separate physics subjects to come together to hear high-level physics talks from experts in their respective fields and to participate in cross-disciplinary discussions relating to time in all its myriad forms and roles in physics research.
