Thematic Einstein Forum

Opening Day

October 26, 2022 

To kick off the collaboration in the Thematic Einstein Forum Scales of Temporality: Modeling Time and Predictability in the Literary and the Mathematical Science, speakers of both institutions will introduce the Thematic Einstein Forum’s central question of temporality and its models from the perspectives of their field and their research agenda. As a starting point for conversations, an opening reception with posters and presentations invites researchers to engage – informally and informatively – in an exchange to initiate a vivid exploration of intersections between the two disciplines and clusters.
