Angelo Bassi was born in Udine (Italy) in 1973. He was awarded the degree in Physics (Summa cum laude) at the University of Trieste in 1998 and the Ph.D. in Physics in 2001. Subsequently he was Post Doctoral Fellow and Visiting Scientist at the ICTP in Trieste (2002/04) and Marie-Curie Fellow at the University Ludwig-Maximillian of Munich (2004/06). In December 2006 he became staff member of the Department of Physics of the University of Trieste. He published about 50 articles in international Journals, among which: 1 Science, 4 PRL, 1 Rev. Mod. Phys, 1 Phys. Rept. He is referee for the APS and IOP journals, and for the American NSF. He is co-organizer of 9 international conferences, workshops, schools on Quantum Mechanics and related topics. He was invited speaker at 25 international conferences and schools. He was guest editor of the special issue of Journal of Physics A: "The Quantum Universe" (2007). He is Chair of the COST Action Fundamental Problems in Quantum Physics
Markus Arndt (* 14. September 1965 in Unkel) ist ein deutscher Physiker und Professor für Quantennanophysik an der Universität Wien. Markus Arndt studierte von 1985 bis 1990 Physik in Bonn und München. Es folgten von 1991 bis 1994 Doktoratsstudien am Max-Planck-Institut für Quantenoptik in Garching; das Thema der Dissertation lautete Optical and magneto-optical spectroscopy of metal atoms in liquid and solid He-4. Von 1994 bis 1995 war Arndt wissenschaftlicher Mitarbeiter am Max-Planck-Institut für Quantenoptik, von 1999 bis 2002 Universitätsassistent am Institut für Experimentalphysik der Universität Wien, ebenda erfolgte 2002 seine Habilitation. Ab September 2004 war er Vertragsprofessor für Quantennanophysik an der Universität Wien. 2008 wurde er Universitätsprofessor für Quantennanophysik an der Fakultät für Physik der Universität Wien. Markus Arndt ist verheiratet und hat zwei Söhne. Im Jahr 2000 erhielt er den Erich-Schmid-Preis der österreichischen Akademie der Wissenschaften (ÖAW), gemeinsam mit G. Springholz, sowie den Fritz-Kohlrausch Preis der Österreichischen Physikalischen Gesellschaft (ÖPG). Im Jahr 2001 wurde er mit dem START-Preis des Fonds zur Förderung der wissenschaftlichen Forschung (FWF) ausgezeichnet, 2008 mit dem FWF Wittgensteinpreis Wittgensteinpreis. 2012 warb er einen Advanced Grant des Europäischen Forschungsrats (ERC) ein . Im Jahr 2013 wurde ihm der Preis der Stadt Wien für Naturwissenschaften zuerkannt. 2014 wurde er zum korrespondierenden Mitglied im Inland der mathematisch-naturwissenschaftlichen Klasse der Österreichischen Akademie der Wissenschaften gewählt.
Stephen Adler (b. 1939 in New York City) is an American physicist specializing in elementary particles and field theory. He received an A.B. degree at Harvard University in 1961 and a Ph.D. from Princeton University in 1964. He became a member of the Institute for Advanced Study in 1966, becoming a full Professor of Theoretical Physics in 1969, and was named "New Jersey Albert Einstein Professor" at the institute in 1979. He has won the J. J. Sakurai Prize from the American Physical Society in 1988, and the Dirac Medal of the International Centre for Theoretical Physics in 1998, among other awards. Adler's seminal papers on high energy neutrino processes, current algebras, soft pion theorems, sum rules, and perturbation theory anomalies helped lay the foundations for the current standard model of elementary particle physics.

Jan Walleczek Ph.D. is Director of the Fetzer Franklin Fund, and a Trustee of the John E. Fetzer Memorial Trust. He lives in Berlin, Germany, where he founded Phenoscience Laboratories. Previously he was Director of the Bioelectromagnetics Laboratory at Stanford University Medical School, Palo Alto, California. Jan Walleczek studied biology at the University of Innsbruck in Austria, followed by doctoral work at the Max-Planck-Institute for Molecular Genetics in Berlin, and post-doctoral work at the Research Medicine and Radiation Biophysics Division of the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, University of California at Berkeley. His research interests are diverse, and his scientific publications cover the fields of biology, chemistry, engineering, and physics. His work focuses on the foundations of quantum mechanics and the application to living systems of concepts such as quantum coherence, emergent dynamics, and the flow of information, a long-standing interest that he summarized as an edited volume for Cambridge University press titled “Self-organized biological dynamics and nonlinear control”. In addition to metascience and advanced research design, his professional interests include the philosophy and the foundations of science.
Jeff Tollaksen is a Professor of Physics and Director of the Center for Excellence in Quantum Studies at Chapman University. He received his BA in physics from MIT. He later attended Boston University where he earned a MA and PhD in theoretical physics. Before teaching at Chapman University, Tollaksen worked in the School of Computational Science at George Mason University. He has published over a dozen articles in various scientific journals and has conducted research via five grants on which he is the prime investigator. (source: Chapman University)
