The Philosophy of Physics Group of the German Physical Society

The Philosophy of Physics Group (AGPhil) of the German Physical Society (DPG) is a forum for conceptual and interpretational questions about physics. Which interpretation of quantum mechanics is the most convincing? Is spacetime as described by general relativity equally fundamental as electrons and quarks? And what are gravitational waves and black holes, really, according to the best theories of modern physics?

The AGPhil meets at least once a year, at one of the spring conferences of the DPG.
