QUARTZ Innovative Training Network

The QUARTZ consortium, involving 7 European Institutions and 13 Early Stage Researchers (ESR), has been awarded a Marie Curie Innovative Training Network (ITN) grant for the application of the formalism of Quantum Theory to Information Retrieval. The University of Leicester currently acts as Partner in the QUARTZ consortium and Dr Sandro Sozzo is the scientist in charge and ESR supervisor. More information about the consortium is available at the webpage http://www.quartz-itn.eu/

Quantum Decision Theory Workshop 2018

Date: 3-4 January 2018

Location: Pécs (Hungary)

The goal of the workshop is to bring together decision/game theorists and physicists to find a common language in discussing uncertainty.

International Symposium Worlds of Entanglement

Date: 29-30 September 2017

Location: Brussels (Belgium)

The symposium was the natural continuation of past events organised by the Centre Leo Apostel for Interdisciplinary Studies of the Free University of Brussels VUB, in particular the “Einstein meets Magritte” conference (1995), and the “Times of Entanglement” symposium (2010). Its aim was to develop an interdisciplinary dialogue about fundamental issues of science and society, with emphasis on the influence of the latest developments in the quantum theory at a scientific and social levels. Information about the symposium can be found at the webpage http://www.vub.ac.be/CLEA/workshop/woe17/
