Natural Ultraviolet Cutoffs In Expanding SpaceTimes  2006
17 talksCollection Number C06011The question of how to describe a natural ultraviolet cutoff in an expanding spacetime is of significance in several respects. First, it concerns the fate of general covariance in the presence of a natural UV cutoff. Second, it concerns the continued generating of degrees of freedom through expansion, which carries with it the possibility of an associated generating of vacuum energy. Finally, through inflation, a natural ultraviolet cutoff may have left observable imprints in the CMB. 
Quantum Reality, Relativistic Causality, and Closing the Epistemic Circle  2006
26 talksCollection Number C06009Perimeter Institute will host an international conference from July 1821, 2006, in honour of Abner Shimony, one of the most eminent physicistphilosophers of our time. Professor Shimony is renowned for his contribution to the famous BellCHSH inequality and for many other contributions in the foundations of physics and philosophy. Talks and discussions will cover a wide range of subjects within physics and philosophy, including theoretical and experimental aspects of quantum entanglement and nonlocality, relativistic causality, quantum measurement problem, probability theory, temporal transience, the mindbody problem, and scientific realism. 
Theory Canada 2  2006
40 talksCollection Number C06005Theory CANADA 2 is the second of a series of annual conferences organized by the Division of Theoretical Physics of the Canadian Association of Physicists. The conferences are planned to be held annually immediately preceding the CAP Congress, and will be held at the regional institute or center for theoretical physics that is appropriate. The host institute for this year's conference is Perimeter Institute for Theoretical Physics located in Waterloo, Ontario. Funding for the conference has been solicited from a panCanadian source of institutes of theoretical physics.

Quantum Information, Computation and Logic: Exploring New Connections  2005
25 talksCollection Number C05010Both quantum logic (QL) and quantum information (QI) are based on viewing quantum mechanics in terms of concepts closely tied to information, so QL, should be closely connected to QI. On the whole, these two research fields are pursued by separate communities and so a closer collaboration is likely to yield significant insights into both. While taking a broad view of both fields, the workshop will focus on areas that we feel are most likely to spark significant collaboration and new research initiatives. 
Summer School: Strings, Gravity & Cosmology  2005
66 talksCollection Number C05009This will be the third in an ongoing series of annual summer schools in theoretical physics held in Canada. The first and second editions of these schools will be held at the University of British Columbia. These schools are intended to educate graduate students and young researchers on current developments in string theory and its interface with gravity and cosmology. Our intent in organizing the 2005 school at the Perimeter Institute at this time is that it will also offer the students the opportunity to attend the Strings 2005 conference, which will be held in Toronto in the week immediately following the school. 
Perimeter/UofT/CITA MiniWorkshop  2005
6 talksCollection Number C05006This miniworkshop will be the next of an ongoing series of oneday meetings between researchers at Perimeter, CITA and University of Toronto. These meetings are held to share new ideas and encourage interactions in our common fields of interest: superstrings, cosmology, particle theory and quantum gravity.
