The Consolidation of Fine-Tuning Project’s capstone conference,“The Physics of Fine-Tuning”, will consist of two dozen talks on physics and the philosophy of physics, focussed on specific questions of fine-tuning within physics and astrophysics. We will have talks on inflation, structure formation, dark matter, inflationary cosmology, quantum cosmology, chemical physics, exoplanet research, explanation in physics, and astrobiology.
The conference will take place from 19-22 June 2017 at the Aquila Rithymna Beach Resort, in Crete, Greece.
