The SASTPC is particularly interested in conferences related to the nature of time, various quantum phenomena, and key aspects of cosmological modeling, especially those which examine and contrast classical and alternative viewpoints.

Most seminars are intended for popular through intermediate level audiences. Subjects include reviews of basic areas of advanced physics including aspects of relativity, quantum physics, string theory and high energy physics. Other seminars may review current areas of astrophysical research. One function of the seminar series is to examine controversial and new approaches to problems, to define and discuss the limits of known physics, and to examine some of the problems facing present day standard models. One area of particular interest involves discussions relating to the nature of time
