In 2012, CERN and Wilton Park hosted the pioneering international conference “The Big Bang and the interfaces of knowledge: towards a common language?”. The event was very successful and a follow-up conference was organised in June 2014 with the purpose of widening the spectrum of scientists, theologians and philosophers involved, continuing the dialogue on one of the key themes that emerged during the first meeting: the nature and the understanding of “truth”.

A key theme emerging from the 2014 event was the nature and understanding of logic, and this third meeting will focus on broadening that particular dialogue between scientists, philosophers and theologians. In particular, the meeting will seek to: create a community engaged in advancing inter-disciplinary dialogue between scientists, philosophers and theologians; give insight into new avenues of joint study and research; encourage conversations between scientists, philosophers and theologians about making their work more accessible to each other.

You are cordially invited to attend the concluding open session of the conference, which will also be recorded by the BBC. Registration is mandatory for people who do not hold a CERN access card. All sessions in English only.
