Centennial Conference “Crossing the Disciplinary Boundaries of Physics”

From 7–11 August 2023, the Niels Bohr Archive, the Niels Bohr International Academy, and the Niels Bohr Institute will host the Centennial Conference “Crossing the Disciplinary Boundaries of Physics.” It is part of a series of events dedicated to celebrating the centenaries of the Niels Bohr Institute (founded in 1921) and Niels Bohr’s Nobel Prize in Physics (awarded to him in 1922).

The conference focuses on the borderlines between physics and other disciplines. It will be held in an innovative three-part format consisting of the following:

  • A three-day history-of-science meeting addressing the history and philosophy of cross-disciplinarity between physics and other fields, broadly construed (7–9 August);
  • A three-day scientific meeting zoning in on the borderlines between physics and biology and addressing cross-disciplinarity in physics from the perspective of current as well as future cutting-edge research (9–11 August);
  • A festive celebration with a public lecture by 2022 Nobel Laureate Morten Meldal in the afternoon of  9 August.

The organizers gratefully acknowledge generous funding from a conference grant by the Novo Nordisk Foundation.

More information can be found on the conference website. While there are only a few seats left for the two scholarly meetings (participation is moderated and registrations have to be approved by the organizers), we encourage everyone interested to register for the festive celebration.
