Analogue Experimentation (International Workshop)

16 July 2018, 9.00 AM - 17 July 2018, 5.00 PM

Royal Engineers House, The Promenade, Clifton Down, Bristol, Co. Bristol, BS8 3NB, England

This workshop brings together physicists and philosophers interested in analogue experimentation in contemporary physics. There will be a particular focus on analogue quantum simulation and analogue gravity, however themes of discussion will also including broader topics including simulation, quantum computation and experimental validation.
