These two days, one at LPSC and one at LAPTh, will be devoted to discussing some conceptual issues in fundamental physics, with the aim of gaining a global overview of the key concepts at play, their implications and possible interpretations. All curious physicists (students and researchers, experimentalists and theorists) are cordially invited! The presentations by invited speakers will be followed by question / discussion sessions. You can find abstracts on the timetable.
