Politecnico di Milano, Department of Mathematics – March 11, 2019
Quantum Mechanics is our most successful theory to account for the microscopic world. Yet, it is still beset with outstanding interpretational questions that have intrigued physicists, mathematicians and philosophers for almost a century. The present workshop aims at exploring some of the major foundational problems that arose already in the early formulations of the theory and continue to plague our understanding of quantum probabilities. The invited speakers are Michael Cuffaro (Western Ontario\Munich\Vienna), Molly Kao (Montreal), Miklos Rédei (London\Munich) and Jos Uffink (Minnesota).

The Society for the Metaphysics of Science (SMS) will be holding its fifth annual conference on November 7-9, 2019 at the University of Toronto.
Our keynote speaker will be Katherine Brading (Duke University).
In addition, Max Kistler (Paris 1 Panthéon-Sorbonne) will deliver a presidential address.
All other sessions will comprise submitted papers.
