## Paradigms of Modern Physics Workshop

#### 22nd - 29th of March 2014, Dorfgastein

The aim of the workshop "Paradigms of Modern Physics - Elaborating the Fundamental Ideas of Theoretical Physics" is to bring together young researchers in theoretical and mathematical physics to discuss the paradigms of modern theoretical physics, in particular of quantum theory, quantum field theory, and gravitation.
