Logic and Quantum Physics

The SSLPS Annual Meeting 2018 will be held at the Università della Svizzera Italiana (USI) Lugano on September 21-22, 2018.

The topic of the 2018 Meeting will be Logic and Quantum Physics:

As it requires a radical revision of the common view of the nature of physical reality but also of how to handle information processes, since its birth quantum physics has been a rich source of challenges and inspirations for philosophy, logic and computer science.

In recent times there has been a growing, exciting body of researches in the foundations of quantum theory, stemming particularly from quantum logic and quantum information, that deserves to be shared and discussed.

The aim of this event is therefore to bring together some of the experts in quantum logic, quantum information and philosophy of physics, to provide with a general overview of the main problematics to a wide audience, but also to stimulate interactions and discussions based on some of the latest developments in the concerned fields with both established researchers and graduate and post graduate students.

Invited Speakers include:
Claus Beisbart (U. Bern)
Olivia Caramello (U. Insubria)
Gemma De Las Cuevas (U. Innsbruck)
Stephan Hartmann (LMU Munich)
Renato Renner (ETHZ)
Ruediger Schack (U. London)
Christian Wuethrich (U. Geneva)

Details about the program are available here, abstracts are available here, and the conference location is described here.

The general assembly of the SSLPS takes place on September 22 in the lecture room of the conference. It will begin immediately after the last talk of the morning session.

The meeting is organized by Alessio Benavoli (IDSIA-SUPSI), Alessandro Facchini (IDSIA-SUPSI), Damiano Costa (ISFI / Master in Philosophy-USI), Arne Hansen (CQI-USI) and Stefan Wolf (CQI-USI).

Attendance of the meeting is free. There is no compulsory registration; however, for organisational reasons, if you plan to attend the meeting (and for any other information) please write to alessandro.facchini@idsia.ch
