The aim of this event is to bring together physicists interested in the history of their subject and professional historians of science in the belief that proponents of the two disciplines, with their different perceptions and methodologies, can benefit from interaction and discourse.
Inspired by the recent centenary of two major landmarks in modern physics, nomination of the proton as a fundamental nuclear particle and discovery of the bending of light in a gravitational field, the leading theme of the present conference will be “On the road to modern physics”.
Presentations on the history of particle physics, general relativity, cosmology and astrophysics will be particularly welcome. However, invited and contributed papers on any topic related to physics history will be considered for inclusion.
