Topic areas


The conference is devoted to the direct empirical status and to its links with other topics in the ontology of symmetries in physics such as the significance of Noether's theorems, the role of gauge symmetries and the ontology of relations.

The anonymised abstracts in English of 1000 words maximum, suitable for presenting in 30 minutes including discussion, should be submitted through the conference website until *1 MARCH 2017*. They will be evaluated by the scientific committee and the decisions will be communicated around the end of March 2017. We cannot provide travel and accommodation grants, but a help with finding the accommodation can be provided. The participation in the conference is free.

Note that your contribution may also give rise to a publication, either in a book or in a special issue of a journal, to be collected via a distinct CFP later on.
