“When it comes to the anthology of the multiverse, my personal take on it is a suggestion i made a few years ago, that energy in the multiverse is conserved because by definition the multiverse is all there is,” said Laura Mersini-Houghton for the science magazine Nautilus.
Tomorrow afternoon, DOKU:TECH Special Edition will give a taste of what to expect from the conference scheduled on August 6-7, 2016 by introducing Albanian-American cosmologist and theoretical physicist Mersini-Houghton.
The world renowned scientist has worked on a variety of topics on the particle physics-cosmology interface. She is particularly interested in the possibility of generating dark energy from transplanckian physics in string theory, gravity and quantum field theory in curved space, and higher dimensional braneworlds.
Mersini-Houghton is a proponent of the multiverse hypothesis, which holds that our universe is one of a finite or infinite number of universes. The notion of “parallel universes” or “alternate realities” is subject to continuous debate, with prominent scientists on both sides either supporting the idea or skeptically writing the concept off as unscientific. She is associate professor at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
This introductory evening will also reveal the theme, speakers and schedule of the DOKU:TECH event in Prizren.
The event will take place at 17:30 at the Faculty of Economics amphitheater ( Amfiteatri i Madh) of University of Prishtina and can be found on Facebook here.
Organized by DokuFest, Share Conference and the Ipko Foundation, DOKU: TECH was launched in 2014 and it features intensive and powerful talks from speakers with various backgrounds and common interest in technology.
