20th Växjö-conference on Quantum Mechanics

The conference Quantum Information Revolution: Impact to Foundations‽ (QIRIF‽)  arranged by International Centre for Mathematical Modelling in physics, engineering and cognitive sciences (ICMM) will start at June 10.This is the jubilee 20th Växjö conference devoted to quantum foundations and applications of quantum theory, especially quantum information and probability. More than 100 scientists from over 20 nations from all over the world will participate.

This years quantum mechanics-conference in Växjö is aimed to highlight and at the same time to question the foundational impact of the recent quantum information revolution and to enlighten recent novel contributions to quantum foundations, theory and experiment, see

One of the participants this year is Professor Lev Vaidman (the image above) from the University of Tel Aviv In Israel, who is one of the creators of the "many worlds interpretation" of quantum physics expresses the parallel existense of many physical worlds:

"The many-worlds interpretation is an interpretation of quantum mechanics that asserts the objective reality of the universal wavefunction and denies the actuality of wavefunction collapse. The existence of the other worlds makes it possible to remove randomness and action at a distance from quantum theory and thus from all physics. Many-worlds implies that all possible alternate histories and futures are real, each representing an actual "world" (or "universe")." (Wikipedia)

Professor Vaidmans lecture is open to all interested – time and place: Monday June 10, at 3 pm, in room Wicksell (K building).
