Revolutionary quantum phenomena like superposition, wave-particle duality, uncertainty principle, entanglement and non-locality are today well-established, albeit continuing debates remain about the profound understanding of their manifestation. Further, these concepts have been enabling a quantum technological revolution. This Royal Society Scientific Discussion Meeting aims at gathering the most relevant recent advances on the foundations of quantum mechanics, highlighting their multidisciplinary impact on contemporary society.

More information on the speakers and programme are available at the meeting webpage:
Recorded audio of the presentations will be available on this page after the meeting has taken place. Meeting papers will be published in a future volume of Philosophical Transactions A.

Poster session. There will be a poster session at 17:00 on Monday 11 December 2017. If you would like to apply to present a poster please submit your proposed title, abstract (no more than 200 word and in third person), author list, name of the proposed presenter and institution to the Scientific Programmes team no later than Friday 10 November 2017. Please note that places are limited and posters are selected at the scientific organiser's discretion. Poster abstracts will only be considered if the presenter is registered to attend the meeting.

This meeting is intended for researchers in relevant fields. It is free to attend, but due to limited places, advanced registration is essential (more information about registration will be available soon). An optional lunch can be purchased during registration.
