EmQM13 – Emergent Quantum Mechanics

03/10 – 06/10/2013, Austrian Academy of Sciences, Vienna Related
Foundations, Physics

The symposium invites the open exploration of an emergent quantum mechanics, a possible “deeper level theory” that interconnects three fields of knowledge: emergence, the quantum, and information. Could there appear a revised image of physical reality from recognizing new links between emergence, the quantum, and information? Could a novel synthesis pave the way towards a 21st century, »super-classical« physics? The symposium provides a forum for discussing (i) important obstacles which need to be overcome as well as (ii) promising developments and research opportunities on the way towards an emergent quantum mechanics. Contributions are invited that present current advances in both standard as well as unconventional approaches to quantum mechanics.

Our symposium was open to the public, with free attendance.
