EmQM15 – Emergent Quantum Mechanics

23/10 – 25/10/2015, Vienna University of Technology

The symposium "EmQM15 – Emergent Quantum Mechanics" invites the open exploration of the quantum state as a reality. The resurgence of interest in ontological quantum theory, including both deterministic and indeterministic approaches, challenges long held assumptions and directs focus towards the following questions:

  • Is the world local or nonlocal? What is the nature of quantum nonlocality?
  • If nonlocal, i.e., superluminal, influences exist then why can’t they be used for superluminal signalling and communication?
  • How is the role of the scientific observer/agent to be accounted for in realistic approaches to quantum theory?
  • How could recent developments in the field of space-time as an emergent phenomenon advance new insight at this research frontier?
  • What new experiments might contribute to new understanding?

These and related questions will be addressed in the context also of a possible “deeper level theory” for quantum mechanics 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? The symposium provides a forum for considering (i) current theoretical and conceptual obstacles which need to be overcome as well as (ii) promising developments and research opportunities on the way towards realistic quantum mechanics. Contributions are invited that present current advances in both standard as well as unconventional approaches.
