Advances in Quantum Theory (AQT)

The Advances in Quantum Theory (AQT) conference is arranged by ICMM, International Centre for Mathematical Modelling in physics, engineering and cognitive sciences, at Linnaeus University in Växjö, Sweden.  June 14-17, 2010 - Växjö, Sweden

This is the 12th conference arranged by ICMM which is devoted to quantum foundations, especially the clarification of fundamental questions. The Växjö series is the longest continuous series of conferences devoted to quantum foundations in the history of quantum mechanics. During previous conferences we have been fortunate to have not only physicists (theorists as well as experimentalists) present, but also mathematicians and several philosophers discussing the foundations of quantum theory. Fundamental questions of quantum mechanics, especially information theory, quantum computing, cryptography and teleportation have continued to be central topics in this series of conferences.
Besides the main conference block – General Questions of Quantum Foundations – special sessions will be organized.
