15 - 18 June 2020, XXIII Summer School in Philosophy of Physics: Philosophy of Quantum Computation, Online

Date: 15 - 18 June 2020
Location: Online
Deadline: Sunday 5 April 2020

We invite participation in the XXIII International Summer School in Philosophy of Physics to be held in Urbino 15th-18th June 2020. The topic of the school is 'Philosophy of Quantum Computation' and it will feature lectures given by Michael Cuffaro (Munich Center for Mathematical Philosophy) and Roberto Giuntini (University of Cagliari), with afternoon seminars given by David Vitali (University of Macerata), Gustavo Martin Bosyk (University of Cagliari), and Rossella Lupacchini (University of Bologna). The School will host a limited number of students, graduate students and early researchers depending on a successful application.

Due to the current COVID-19 pandemic, it will be impossible to host the XXIII International Summer School in Philosophy of Physics in Urbino. For this reason, we have decided to move the school online and make it free of charge.

We wish to offer three young researchers in Philosophy of Quantum Computation the opportunity to test their skills by presenting their original papers to the other participants of the School. Three sessions of the School will be devoted to these presentations: interested graduate students, postgraduates and early researchers are invited to submit an abstract (no longer than 1000 words) suitable for blind review.
