An extraordinary feature of modern theoretical physics is its interconnectedness. As we look more deeply at particular problems, we find unexpected links to seemingly very different problems. Ideas and methods from one subfield become crucial to progress ion other subfields, and looking at new phenomena poses conceptual challenges far beyond the original context. In this series of symposia we celebrate this unity of our subject, bringing together leading young researchers exploring a wide range of topics. In the first day’s events, we will hear about problems ranging from the physics of biological systems to quantum gravity, and from quantum field theory to the interface between physics and computation.
