On 25-27 February 2019, a conference on “Space Time Matrices” will be organised by Thibault Damour, Jens Hoppe and Maxim Kontsevich at IHES.
Large-N limits of matrix models have been proposed as a way of describing the structure of Space and Time.
The conference will review these models that may bring a new light on trying to reconcile Gravity and the Quantum.
