Here are some of the folks that were at the workshop “Exploring Quantum Spacetime” in Bad Honnef last week (click for larger version):
I didn’t take this picture, but I did take some pictures of my own. Mostly, I took a lot of bad pictures, due to insufficient lighting and me not wanting to be any more obnoxious than necessary by using a flash. But, I’ll post a few here that turned out … well, OK, at least.
Steffen is one of my main collaborators right now, and I’m starting to talk seriously about doing some work with Sean, so it was nice to see both of them at the workshop.
As you might expect, there were a lot of other people having conversations about physics, like Dario Benedetti and Renee Hoekzema here, for example:
or Benjamin Bahr and Etera Livine:
Here are some shots taken at lunch one day (I won’t bother naming people in these):
Finally, here’s a self portrait I took in a hallway of the Physikzentrum one evening:
Actually, it’s not much of a portrait, but at least the mirror is nice. Mirrors I’ve seen in other physics institutes have been much more utilitarian.
