Quantum and Beyond

Quantum and Beyond (QB)

International conference devoted to quantum theory and experiment, at Linnaeus University in Växjö, June 13-16, 2016. Arrival June 12, departure June 17.

The QB conference is arranged by ICMM, International Centre for Mathematical Modelling in physics, engineering and cognitive sciences, at Linnaeus University in Växjö, Sweden.

It is devoted to quantum theory and experiment, from the most fundamental problems of quantum foundations, including foundations of quantum information, probability and randomness, to novel quantum technologies (cryptography, random generators, imaging, computing, teleportation). In general, the conference is planned as an event unifying the efforts of experts in foundations, mathematical methods, and experimenters to clarify the fundamental questions of quantum theory and its future applications.

Foundational highlights: (non)locality, (non)realism, (non)determinism, (non)predictability, possibilities to go beyond quantum – creation of novel models providing better understanding of physics of micro-world, in particular, unifying quantum theory and gravity. Here "beyond quantum" need not (although can be) treated as creation of subquantum models with hidden variables. Novel BQ-models may differ crucially both from quantum and classical physical models; in particular, they may explore completely new mathematics.

The "Big Event – Final Bell test" (June 15) will be filmed and also streamed at the following link: https://youtu.be/oA8XNqukKkM.
