EmQM17 – Towards Ontology of Quantum Mechanics and the Conscious Agent

26/10 – 28/10/2017, University of London, Senate House, Beveridge Hall

On the occasion of David Bohm’s 100th birthday, the EmQM17 Symposium offered an open forum for critically evaluating the prospects and significance – for 21st century physics – of ontological quantum mechanics, an approach which David Bohm helped pioneer. Contributions were invited that presented current advances in both standard as well as realist approaches to quantum mechanics, including new experiments, work in quantum foundations, and quantum philosophy.

Book-Publication
"Emergent Quantum Mechanics – David Bohm Centennial Perspectives"
A special issue of "Entropy"

An open-access special issue of Entropy titled “Emergent Quantum Mechanics – David Bohm Centennial Perspectives” invited original speaker contribution: This Special Issue explores the possibility of an ontology for quantum mechanics. The focus is the search for a “deeperlevel” theory for quantum mechanics that interconnects three fields of knowledge: emergence, the quantum, and information. Contributions will be featured that present current advances in realist approaches to quantum mechanics, including new experiments, work in quantum foundations, and the physics of the quantum observer and the conscious experimenter agent.
