This is the final meeting  of the COST Action MP1006 "Fundamental Problems in Quantum Physics"

The conference will present a critical perspective of theoretical and experimental research in quantum physics from the foundational point of view: where are with at, with our understanding of the quantum world? What did we learn so far? What are the most relevant open issues? What the directions for future research?

The topics addressed by the conference include:

  • Quantum Foundations.
  • Mathematical Physics & QFT.
  • Quantum interferometry.
  • Testing fundamental principles.
  • Quantum complex systems.
  • Quantum gravity.
  • Gravity and Cosmology

Within the Workshop a special event will be organized in honor of GianCarlo Ghirardi to celebrate his 80s birthday.




Erice is located on top of Mount Erice, at around 750 metres (2,460 ft) above sea level, overlooking the city of Trapani, the low western coast towards Marsala, the dramatic Punta del Saraceno and Capo San Vito to the north-east, and the Aegadian Islands on Sicily's north-western coast, providing spectacular views.
