The Centre was established in October 2002, and is supported by the Australian Research Council and the University of Sydney, under the terms of a Federation Fellowship awarded to Professor Huw Price. The Centre's core research focuses on the role of time and time-asymmetry in the conceptual foundations of modern physics, and on related issues in philosophy, but it hosts conferences, research workshops and lectures on a wide range of philosophical topics. For details of past and future events, and other information about the Centre and its activities, see the Centre's webpages at

This collection aims to archive and make accessible a range of material from the Centre's research meetings, including audio material, conference slides and texts of presentations.
