The new dates will appear shortly. This will be the 50th edition of the ISMD conference series, bringing together physicists ...

CANCELLED: Insight from Spatial Data: yt User/Developer Workshop

This workshop is cancelled due to the covid-19 outbreak. The yt project is an open-source, community driven Python package for analyzing large, complex geometric and spatial datasets. Originally designed for astrophysical simulations, yt has expanded into a number of other domains with spatial analysis needs, including the geosciences, medical imaging ...

EXALAT - Lattice Field Theory at the Exascale

EXALAT is a project funded by UKRI to address the needs of the lattice field theory community in the UK in the era of Exascale computing. The advent of new Exascale computers, based on heterogeneous architectures, will open new possibilities and bring new challenges. The purpose of this workshop is ...

Public Talk: The Many Worlds of Quantum Mechanics

One of the great intellectual achievements of the twentieth century was the theory of quantum mechanics, according to which observational results can only be predicted probabilistically rather than with certainty. Yet, after decades in which the theory has been successfully used on an everyday basis, most physicists would agree that ...
