Topic areas


The Philosophy of Physics Group (AGPhil) of the German Physical Society (DPG) invites submissions for its annual conference which will take place within the framework of the annual conference of the DPG. Contributions on any topic in the philosophy of physics are welcome. A particular focus in this year will be the philosophical analysis of gravitational wave and black hole physics, and we particularly encourage submissions on this topic.

The following speakers have already accepted the invitation to speak at the AGPhil sessions:

Juliusz Doboszewski (Bonn)

Isobel Falconer (St Andrews)

Peter Galison (Harvard)

Tushar Menon (Cambridge)

Lydia Patton (Virginia Tech)

Karim Thébault (Bristol)

The conference will take place 21-25 March 2022 and will be held entirely online. The DPG divisions for gravitational physics, particle physics, history of physics, and theoretical/mathematical physics, among others, also convene at the same conference. The conference will have many parallel sessions organised by the various DPG groups and divisions, and any attendee can freely jump between the different sessions on physics, its philosophy and history.  

If you would like to present a paper, please submit an abstract of about 200 words by 21 January 2022 (ignore the stated 15 January 2022 abstract submission deadline on the website), using the online-form at

We look forward to seeing you at the conference!
