This is a biannual symposium organised by the study association for physics, astronomy, mathematics and computer science in Leiden, De Leidsche Flesch. At this symposium, this time held on account of the 100th year anniversary of the association, more than ten speakers from all fields of science will tell us all about the field of interest. At Scheltema in Leiden we will experience a day full of talks, science and curiosity.
Captivated by Time
How Time Affects All Sciences
Time is something we encounter everyday and that influences our lives in the most fundamental way. At the same time it is some of the most mysterious aspects of life. “What is time?” is a question that might drive you insane, if you think really hard about it. Nevertheless, besides philosophical and metaphysical questions we can also study time and its effects on everything around us. What role does time play in mathematics? Can we capture time in a physical model? How is time perceived? We hope the speakers of the symposium can give us a little insight into what the answers to these and a lot of other questions might be.
The De Leidsche Flesch symposium is an initiative of De Leidsche Flesch, the study association for physics, astronomy, mathematics and computer science at Leiden University. The association organises a lot of activities for students ranging from drinks and pub quizzes, to lunch lectures and study trips. This symposium is also held on the account of a special occasion, the 100th year anniversary of the association: a real milestone in the existence of De Leidsche Flesch, which played an important role in the atmosphere of education in science in Leiden. The symposium has a goal: spark an interest in scientific fields that are related to the field of study, or work, of its visitors, while at the same time broaden their horizon. With this initiative we want to speak to people from across the faculty, different universities and other associations.
