Abstract

Time is a funny thing. You can spend it, save it, waste it and kill it, but you can't change it and there is never any more or less of it. Everyone knows what it is and uses it every day but no one can seem to define it.

In this talk I will provide a brief introduction to time, timekeeping, and the uses of time information, especially in scientific and technical areas.
