What better way to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Bell’s Theorem than with a conference? Quantum [Un]Speakables II: 50 Years of Bell's Theorem celebrated John Bell, his theorem and its consequences by focusing on the basics and fundamental questions. The conference took place at the University of Vienna from June 19 to 22, 2014.
Some of the key researchers in the field met 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 list of invited speakers can be found here.
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, took place on Friday, 20 June 2014 at 8 p.m. at the Austrian Academy of Sciences (Großer Festsaal).
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.
The third Quantum [Un]Speakables Conference is planned for the year 2028. Registration for Quantum [Un]Speakables III will open shortly. Watch for it here!
