International conference devoted to quantum foundations, especially information and probability, including foundational questions of quantum engineering, at Linnaeus University in Växjö, June 8-11 , 2020. Arrival June 7, departure June 12, 2020 (the last conference day, June 11, will be the most intensive one, is planned to end at 18.30).
About the conference program: invited speakers (30 min) and contributed talks (20 min) - times including questions - and posters. Deadline for abstract submission is May 2, 2020. [One can first submit the abstract via registration, and pay the conference fee later.]
For graduate and postgraduate students, a poster-presentation is preferable, because a poster would get higher visibility than a talk in one of a few parallel sessions. The journal Entropy supports the awards for the two best posters with 350 and 150 Swiss francs respectively.
The QIP 2020 Conference is arranged by International Centre for Mathematical Modelling in physics, engineering and cognitive sciences (ICMM). Quantum information revolution has big foundational impact. We invite all kinds of contributions devoted quantum foundations, especially (but not exclusively) with coupling to quantum information, probability, and measurement theory.

On conference fee, registration and abstracts
All participants, including invited speakers, are requested to pay the conference fee. Because the conference budget is created by conference fees only, all participants are kindly requested to pay the conference fee at their earliest convenience. This situation is a consequence of the annual character of the conference series during 20 years. The conference organizers have already used the majority of foundations to support the series. If you plan to take your accompanied persons with you lunches and /or conference dinner, please do not forget to include these costs in your registartion.
Last day to register: May 2, 2020
Linnaeus University does not accept cash payments. Better for the environment and for our safety. You pay the conference fee by credit/debit card when registering and you also use card to pay in our stores. You can also pay the fee via bank transfer. The trend throughout Sweden is that fewer and fewer places accept cash.

How to get to Växjö/Linnaeus University
You can reach Växjö either by flying directly to the city - from Stockholm/Bromma Airport or Amsterdam/Schiphool - or by flying to Copenhagen airport Kastrup or Stockholm airport and taking a train to Växjö, click for more info at Växjö Smaland Airport website!
Click here for the train table, from for example "Copenhagen airport" to "Växjö station".
Travelling between central Växjö and Linnaeus University
For connection to Växjö Smaland Airport, either the bus (local bus no. 4) or taxi is recommended:
The best way to reach campus is to take bus number 3 heading towards "Universitetet". Our recommendation is to buy a "Visitor’s ticket". With this, you can travel all over Växjö city and you can choose between a ticket valid for either 24 or 72 hours. The ticket can be purchased on board the bus or at the customer center (Växjö resecentrum) at Växjö railway station. If you want to pay on the bus we suggest you use your credit card. If you pay with cash there is an extra fee.
All bus routes are operated by Länstrafiken. Click here for bus time tables.
Växjö Taxi, +46 (0)470–135 00, or Värends Taxi +46 (0)470–169 00. The taxi stand is located at Växjö Station (rail and bus station, in the city centre).
