Bell’s theorem has been called “the most profound discovery of science”. However, there have been controversies on the deep implications of the theorem. The main purpose of this online workshop is to highlight the existing debates and address the controversies. Another purpose is to get some constructive inputs to the forthcoming Bell volume edited by Mary Bell and Shan Gao. This workshop will be the last event to celebrates the 50th anniversary of Bell’s theorem.
Workshop Date: Thursday, December 18, 2014 to Friday, January 16, 2015
Organizers: International Journal of Quantum Foundations
Different from a conventional workshop, this online workshop will be self-organized to a large extent. It means that if a participant has a paper or ideas to present, he may create a topic in the workshop forum on his own, which gives a concise introduction to his ideas to be discussed, and which also states the date and time of his two-hour discussion (e.g. in the title of the topic). Then other participants can leave comments beforehand or participate in the discussions by text chat in the forum in the two-hour duration at the time. Every member is welcome to participate in the workshop.
If you have any questions or suggestions about the workshop, please feel free to contact us. Selected presentations in this workshop will be published in a special issue of International Journal of Quantum Foundations.
