An international conference devoted to quantum foundations, especially information and probability, including foundational questions of quantum engineering, at Linnaeus University in Växjö. The conference is supported by The Mathemathical Institute at Linnaeus University.
The conference will be based on the talks of invited speakers (30 min + 5 min questions) and contributed talks (20 min + 5 min questions). For contributed talks, the acceptance decision will be done based on the abstract, so please start with registration (without paying the fee) and abstract submission. After the positive reply, one goes back to the registration form and pays the org. fee.
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 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 to quantum foundations, especially (but not exclusively) with coupling to quantum information, probability, and measurement theory.
If you have any questions or inquiries about the conference, please use mail: firstname.lastname@example.org
Registration and Abstract Submission
We recommend to start registration as soon as possible. You will be able to complete it with the abstract and fee payment.
For contributed talks, we recommend to submit abstracts as soon as possible and you will receive an email on the result of consideration.
We have an early-bird price if you register before April 20 . If you register before April 20 you pay 2800 SEK (if you are a PhD Student you pay 1000 SEK) and after that date the conference fee will be 3000 SEK (PhD Student pay 1200 SEK).
The conference fee includes:
- Conference materials
- Refreshments during all coffee breaks
- Conference dinner (Wednesday June 15)
Deadline for abstract submission and registration is April 20.

Quantum Structures in Quantum Information and Machine Learning
Organizers: Federico Holik and Giuseppe Sergioli
This special section will be devoted to study different quantum structures in relation to quantum information theory and machine learning. We will focus on the application of quantum-like probabilities and quantum information theory techniques in special machine learning problems, such as classification. The section will be also devoted to other quantum structures related to the notions of majorization, lattice theory and contextuality in the framework of quantum information theory.
Quantum Effects Biology
Organizer: Sergey Polyakov (NIST, USA).
The future progress of biology heavily relies on advancements in quantum science. On one hand, many fundamental processes in biology can only be explained via quantum theory. Quantum methods are required to prove those theories. On the other hand, today’s bioscience pushes the limits of conventional measurement, so quantum measurement methods may become the only recourse to achieve better resolutions, higher sensitivities, and reduce damage to fragile bio-targets. While the field is driven by practical applications, at issue are a range of fundamental phenomena that may have a significant impact on how we understand the world we live in and the role of quantum mechanics in it.
Quantum mechanics meets gravity
Organizer Renato Renner.
The unification of quantum theory and general relativity is one of the biggest challenges in modern physics. To gain insights into how such a unification could look like, it is useful to consider phenomena where quantum and gravity effects play together. One example is the Hawking radiation of black holes. Another example are quantum superpositions of spacetime or reference frames. This session will focus on the recent progress that has been made in the study of such examples and, more generally, the understanding of the interplay between quantum theory and gravity.
