The deadline for registration, booking of accommodation, and submission of abstracts has been extended to Friday, 13 July 2012.

To register and submit abstracts please vist the conference web site http://quantum.ukzn.ac.za/events/quantum-africa-2

The call for paper and registration are now extended and special fees for students are now available for The Time Machine Factory Conference, October 14th - 19th 2012, Turin, Italy.
The Scientific Organizing Committee encourage to contribute through oral and poster presentations.

The registration is now open for the International Workshop "Horizons of Quantum Physics: from Foundations to Quantum-Enabled Techonologies", to be held in Taipei, Taiwan on October 14th - 18th 2012.
Attendees are strongly encouraged to contribute through poster presentations which will be displayed in the designated area adjacent to the workshop floor. Registration and poster abstract submission can be carried out on our webpage. Please note you can register first and submit your abstract at a later time by logging in on our website.

Constantin Piron, famous for many things including the Jauch-Piron NoGo-theorem and his reconstruction theorem, and of course his beautiful book Foundations of Quantum Physics, has died at the age of 80 on May 9, 2012. While usually associated with quantum logic, he strongly emphasized an operational underpinning of axiomatic concepts, and boldly went against any dogma, including quantum logic.

We are now accepting submissions for QCRYPT 2012 to be held in Singapore 10 – 14 September, 2012. Submissions of abstracts for contributed papers are sought in both theoretical as well as experimental quantum cryptography and related fields. We encourage submissions from related areas such as non-locality and information theory. Paper submission deadline is 20 May, 2012 and poster submission deadline is 1 August 2012.

We'd like to announce the next Q+ hangout:

Date: 24th April 2012

Time: 14:00 British Summer Time

Title: Fundamental limitations for quantum and nano thermodynamics

Speaker: Jonathan Oppenheim (University College London)

Two chapters of Advanced Topics in Measurements published by InTech March 2012 using variant construction to show positive evidences to resolve wave-particle duality and Bohr-Einstein debates on the foundation of the Quantum Mechanics.

In relation to classical Young double slits experiments, EPR model, Bell Inequalities, Feynman Criteria and Bohr-Einstein debates, a set of predictions and conjectures are suggested.

In the Chapter 18: From Local Interactive Measurements to Global Matrix Representations on Variant Construction – A Particle Model of Quantum Interactions for Double Path Ex

Quantum measures play a key role in quantum interactions. In this paper, a variant simulation system – a variant double path model – is proposed that uses multiple variable logic functions and variant principle schemes applied to input/output relationships as a variant quaternion. Under this mechanism, a two-state system of quantum interactions can be simulated by the variant double path model. Visual distributions can be expressed by their probability, synchronous/asynchronous, and symmetry/anti-symmetry statistical properties.

The Scuola Normale Superiore (SNS) in Pisa (Italy) is a public institute for higher education with unique features: the selection of students – through specific public competitions – is based on merit only, classes are organized like seminars, teaching and research are closely linked, college life is an integrated part of the experience. Moreover, according to the best models of higher instruction in Europe, great space is devoted to international exchanges. The greatest resource of the Normale is the quality of its students.
