Prospects for causal set quantum gravity

The overall objective of this workshop is to assess progress made in the past few years in causal set theory and set new challenges. The meeting also aims to stimulate mathematical work on causal sets as discrete models of spacetime. The meeting will produce a road map of interlocking problems and projects whose solution would constitute major progress towards quantum gravity.

The meeting will be structured around a set of questions on kinematics, dynamics and phenomenology, however it is expected that discussion at the meeting will also have its own momentum, particularly in the interaction with the experts on probability and combinatorics.

All lectures will be held in the Newhaven Lecture Theatre of the ICMS building. The Lecture Theatre is equipped with a data projector, computer, visualiser (the new generation of overhead projectors) and two blackboards. The projector and one board may be used simultaneously.  It is best to bring your presentation on a memory stick to use in our ICMS computer. Alternatively, it is possible for you to use your own laptop with our data projector, but please be aware that you may have to alter your laptop resolutions/settings.
