Symposium Worlds of Entanglement, 28-30 Sept. 2017, Free University of Brussels (VUB)

Symposium Worlds of Entanglement 2017

In the last decades, quantum theory has advanced from a “passive attitude,” where quantum features of physical systems were exploited to obtain useful technologies, to an “active attitude,” where the deep structure of quantum reality has been manipulated to design new systems and processes. This new “quantum way of thinking” not only has expanded the application of quantum theory from the micro-physical to the macro-physical domain, but has also brought new perspectives on how we should think about some of the most fundamental notions conceived by the human intellect, such as information, complexity, life, rationality and consciousness.  We aim at interdisciplinary dialogues between experts in quantum theory and experts in life and social sciences to discuss how the most recent advances in our understanding of the nature of reality impact science and the future of our society.

Accepted abstracts will be invited to give a presentation and to prepare an article to be published in the journal Foundations of Science

Call for papers: Special Issue in Quantum Structures in Computer Science - Theoretical Computer Science

Submission Deadline: 2nd July 2017.

The Special Issue in Quantum Structures in Computer Science aims at opening the quantum theoretical approach to the community of computer and information scientists, explaining how the quantum mechanical formalism addresses the challenges of the dynamic and multi-modal nature of data and user interaction context, and hence can be successfully applied to natural language, semantics and information access and retrieval, and related problems.

Foundations of Quantum Mechanics and Technology (FQMT) International conference

The Foundations of Quantum Mechanics and Technology (FQMT) conference is arranged by International Centre for Mathematical Modelling in physics, engineering and cognitive sciences (ICMM) at Linnaeus University in Växjö, Sweden, in June 12-15, 2017.

This is the 18th Växjö conference devoted to quantum foundations and applications of quantum theory, especially quantum information. It is devoted to quantum foundations (including philosophical issues), experiment, and recently developed quantum technologies (with emphasize of their foundational aspects). The conference is supported by the Department of Mathematics, Linnaeus University and the Entropy journal.
