Quantum [Un]Speakables II: 50 Years Bell's Theorem

Wednesday, 18 Jun. 2014, 08:00 - Sun, 22 Jun. 2014, 19:00

Host: Reinhold Bertlmann & Anton Zeilinger

What better way to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Bell’s Theorem than
with a conference? With Quantum [Un]Speakables II: 50 Years of Bell's
Theorem we celebrate John Bell, his theorem and its consequences by
focusing on the basics and fundamental questions. The conference will take
place at the University of Vienna from June 19 to 22, 2014.

The first Quantum [Un]Speakables conference took place at the University
of Vienna in 2000. The 50th anniversary of Bell’s Theorem presents the
perfect occasion for a sequel.

Some of the key researchers in the field will meet to take stock of what
has happened in the fifty years since John Bell’s momentous formulation of
his theorem, to reassess the current state of knowledge and think about
its consequences for the future of science in the light of current
fundamental research. The current list of invited speakers can be found
here. We will update the list as invitees accept our invitation, so please
check back later!

A collection of essays, modeled after that of the first conference which
has become seminal in the field, is also planned for Quantum
[Un]Speakables II.

The public lecture, presented by Alain Aspect, Professor of Physics at the
Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique CNRS, France, will take place
on Friday, 20 June 2014 at 8 p.m. at the Austrian Academy of Sciences
(Großer Festsaal).
