The Templeton Frontiers Conferences and Workshops

The Templeton Frontiers Program enhances and optimizes the research environment for these outstanding young scientists through sustained mentorship and full-spectrum support, through visits by established international research leaders, and through colloquia, workshops and conferences in the selected fields. Templeton Frontiers Program researchers in turn have excellent opportunities to share their research and ideas within a wider expert community well-primed to engage with them.

The following are a list of conferences held at the Perimeter Institute. 

Conference Listing:

Cosmological Frontiers in Fundamental Physics 2013 

The purpose of this informal workshop was to discuss and exchange ideas on recent developments at the interface of modern cosmology and fundamental physics.

Loops '13  

This conference, which was part of the series of Loops conferences, presented and reviewed recent progress and highlights in loop quantum gravity and other quantum gravity approaches. There was a focus mainly on background independent approaches which are approaches that do not depend on perturbation theory formulated in a classical background.

Renormalization Group Approaches to Quantum Gravity

This workshop, for the first time, brought together researchers working on different models of quantum gravity, who use the Renormalization Group in different forms. Conceptual as well as more technical questions were discussed, and a new dialogue between different quantum gravity approaches was established.


International Workshop on Quantum LDPC Codes

The subject of this workshop centered around the leading edge of current research in Quantum Information, specifically in the field of quantum error correction.  Quantum LDPC codes is the only class of codes where a finite rate and a finite fault-tolerant error correction threshold are known to coexist.

Superluminality in Effective Field Theories for Cosmology

The aim of this workshop was to bring people together to discuss the controversies surrounding superluminality and make progress on the outstanding issues.

Information Theoretic Foundations for Physics

The purpose of this conference is to bring together researchres from different fields of theoretical physics in order to discuss information-theoretic approaches and their potential for innovations in the foundations of physics.

The Templeton Frontiers Program will catalyze path-breaking research by encouraging young scientists to pursue ambitious ideas.
