Call for Applications: Spring School "The History, Philosophy, and Sociology of Large Physics Experiments", Wuppertal (13-20 March 2022).

The Research Unit "The Epistemology of the LHC" invites applications for the Spring School "The History, Philosophy, and Sociology of Large Physics Experiments" taking place 13-20 March 2022 in Wuppertal (Germany).

Large experiments such as the Large Hadron Collider (LHC), the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory (LIGO), and the Event Horizon Telescope (EHT) play an essential role at the frontiers of contemporary fundamental physics. These experiments employ big research facilities, they probe nature at vast energy and length scales, they produce immense amounts of data, and they involve great numbers of researchers. During this Spring School we will explore large physics experiments from historical, philosophical, and sociological perspectives. We will discuss questions such as those arising from the history and philosophy of fundamental physics, the methodological challenges of big data, and the history and sociology of large research collaborations.
