Two events that have had a strong influence on the world of science are celebrating an anniversary this year. First, 100 years ago Eddington confirmed gravitational light bending. Next, 70 years ago Kurt Gödel showed that the theory of relativity allows existence of curves which are closed in time.

On this occasion, the Kurt Gödel Society is organizing an international conference "Kurt Gödel's Legacy: Does Future Lie in The Past?" at the University of Vienna from July 25 to 27, 2019.

The conference is supported by the University of Vienna, the Austrian Academy of Sciences, the research platform TURIS, the Vienna Center for Logic and Algorithms at the TU Wien, the Department Vienna Circle at University of Vienna and the Vienna Circle Society.
