CFP and CFA: Urbino Summer School on the Philosophy of Quantum Computation

*Call for Participation* and *Call for Papers*

The Inter-University Center for Philosophy and Foundations of Physics (CIRFIS), the Department of Pure and Applied Sciences of the University of Urbino Carlo Bo and the Italian Society for Logic and Philosophy of Science (SILFS) are glad to present:

XXIII International Summer School in Philosophy of Physics
15-18 June 2020, University of Urbino

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 know that Summer Schools are occasions to spend time together with other students and researchers, and it is difficult to create the same environment at a distance. Nevertheless, we want to offer to the international community an occasion of “meeting” online and discussing thrilling foundational issues, despite these dire times. We will try our best to create an enjoyable and instructive experience for all participants.

The topic of the school is the “Philosophy of Quantum Computation”, and it will feature lectures by Roberto Giuntini (University of Cagliari & Centro Linceo Interdisciplinare “Beniamino Segre”), Maria Luisa Dalla Chiara (University of Florence), Michael Cuffaro (Munich Center for Mathematical Philosophy), Giuseppe Sergioli (University of Cagliari); and seminars by Rossella Lupacchini (University of Bologna), and Gustavo Martin Bosyk (University of Cagliari).

The deadline for applications is the 24th of May, 2020.

The School is free of charge and everybody is welcome to attend. Nonetheless, an application is required in order to participate. Moreover, we have reserved three slots in the program of the Summer School for young scholars interested in presenting their research. We strongly encourage submissions from women and other underrepresented groups in Philosophy of Science.

The details of the application process and the full program of the School can be found at:
