1st Brazilian Conference on Foundations of Quantum Theories

Data e local: de 11 à 13/08/2020, Instituto de Física da Universidade de São Paulo (IFUSP).


Quantum theory owes its development to the acknowledgment that the foundations of classical physics must be viewed afresh. But to this day, reinterpreting experience in light of quantum theory continues to challenge researchers. Profound, difficult questions regarding the content of quantum theory are not at all settled, and we devote this conference to them. The 1st Brazilian Conference on the Foundations of Quantum Theories aims to encourage the collaboration between physicists, philosophers and mathematicians that work on the interdisciplinary area of foundations of quantum theories. Participants will engage primarily in debates about quantum-theoretical questions at the intersection of physics, mathematics and philosophy, but also in a meta-level debate of how these fields can productively interact to sharpen our understanding of the world as portrayed by quantum theory. We invite you all to join us in this discussion.

Sobre o evento


This conference will feature physicists, philosophers of physics and mathematicians.
Main talks will last 45 minutes, followed by 30 minutes of commentary and discussion.
Submitted talks will last 30 minutes, followed by 15 minutes of discussion. We encourage researchers from physics, philosophy and mathematics to submit abstracts for talks.  
Call for posters to be presented at the 1st Brazilian Conference on Foundations of Quantum Physics is also open. The poster forum will take place in the morning of August 11th. Undergraduates who work on foundations of quantum theories or related topics are especially encouraged to submit poster abstracts.
