Quantum Theory: Reconsideration of Foundation, 4 (QTRF4)

International conference at Växjö University, June 11-16, 2007. Arranged by ICMM - International Centre for Mathematical Modelling in physics, engineering and cognitive sciences - at Växjö University, Sweden.

This is the fourth conference arranged by ICMM which is devoted to quantum foundations, especially clarification of fundamental questions. The first three  conferences took place in 2001, 2003, and 2005. Some closely related conferences are Bohmian Mechanics 2000 and   Foundations of probability and Physics 2000,  2002, 2004 and 2006.

This conference is devoted to the 80 years of the Copenhagen Interpretation. There are plans to discuss the relevance of the Copenhagen interpretation for the present understanding of quantum mechanics.
During previous conferences we were lucky to collect fruitful mixtures of physicists (including experimenters), mathematicians and even philosophers interested in foundations. Fundamental questions of quantum mechanics, especially information theory, quantum computing, cryptography, and teleportation are important topics at the conference.

Quantum fluctuations (in the form of SED or other approaches to stochastic quantum mechanics) always play a fundamental role (especially in debates). Even adherents of Bohmian mechanics and the many-worlds interpretation are warmly welcome. We also hope to have talks on completeness and incompleteness of quantum mechanics, macroscopic quantum systems, experiments on quantum nonlocality and locality, Bell's inequality, quantum probability, entanglement, quantum computing and cryptography technologies, philosophic problems, and mathematical formalism.
