We write to inform you of the forthcoming Workshop “Foundations of Quantum Mechanics and Relativistic Spacetime”, to be held in Athens (Greece), on the 25th and 26th of September 2012. The workshop is organised in the framework of the European COST Action MP1006 “Fundamental Problems in Quantum Physics” (http://www.equantum.eu). It constitutes the annual meeting of the action’s 3rd Working Group “Quantum Theory meets Relativity”. The previous year’s meeting was held in London (http://plato.tp.ph.ic.ac.uk/conferences/cost2011/Welcome.html).

We are glad to invite you to participate in this workshop. Submission of contributions
is open until Monday, August 6, 2012. Please follow the registration at the webpage
