Following the success of last year’s event in Zurich, Switzerland, this year’s Time in Quantum Theory conference will take place in person at the Technical University of Vienna (TU Wien), Austria. It will cover various fields from communities who do not usually have a common platform for interaction. Key questions which we wish to address include:

-Fundamental limitations to time keeping: how accurate can clocks be as a function of appropriate physical parameters? This includes but is not limited to, models for clocks, quantum information theory and thermodynamics.

-How can we understand time through quantum experiments?

-Foundational aspects of time: what can/do philosophy and quantum foundations say about time? How does this reflect itself in theoretical models? How can the conception of time in quantum mechanics be reconciled with that of general relativity?

The conference will consist of invited talks by experts as well as contributed talks, poster sessions, and extended discussion sessions.
