Workshop “Kefalonia Foundations 2024: Theoretical and Conceptual Foundations of Quantum Physics,” Kefalonia (Greece), June 25th-30th, 2024

Dear friends and colleagues,

We are delighted to announce the workshop “Kefalonia Foundations 2024: Theoretical and Conceptual Foundations of Quantum Physics,” which for the third time will gather 17 young scholars (Ph.D. students, early postdocs, etc.) on the beautiful island of Kefalonia (Greece) on June 25th-30th, 2024.

The workshop aims to challenge some of the drawbacks of the typical academic environment, create a deep sense of cooperation, and promote research in an open-minded and non-dogmatic way.

The focus will be on in-team research, where participants from different backgrounds (physicists, philosophers, and mathematicians) will analyze selected papers on the foundations of quantum physics, proposed by the participants. This structure will lay the groundwork for original research through collaborations established during the workshop. Participants will be able to cultivate community values through shared social and physical activities.

This year, applicants are asked to submit a short “Statement of Motivation” (max. 1500 characters) to describe why they think this unconventional workshop structure would be a good fit for them. After acceptance, participants will form pairs and propose papers to be discussed at the workshop.

Submit your application following the instructions on the dedicated page no later than March 8th, 2024.

Further details can be found at the link.

Please feel free to share this invitation among possibly interested colleagues.

We look forward to receiving your application!

All the best,
Flavio, Lefteris and Guilherme
