The annual IQF meeting aims to bring together Irish and international theoretical physicists who work in areas broadly related to fundamental theory and quantum foundations. An important goal of the meeting is to give early career researchers an opportunity to present their work to the academic research community. The annual O’Raifeartaigh Lecture which is part of the programme will be given this year by Prof. Nima Arkani-Hamed of IAS, Princeton.
Additionally, each year we organise a public talk to communicate aspects of research to a broader audience. This year the public talk "Black Holes and Quantum Computers" will be given by Prof. Marika Taylor of the University of Southampton on the evening of Wednesday May 22nd. The event is free and tickets are available via eventbrite.
The event will be hosted in the School of Mathematics at Trinity College Dublin and an advanced school for PhD students and post-doctoral researchers will proceed the meeting on May 20th-22nd. All the lectures will take place in the Joly lecture theatre in the Hamilton building. There will be a dinner in Dada restaurant at 7:30pm on Thursday evening.
