The winner of the Paul Ehrenfest Best Paper Award for Quantum Foundations for the year 2018 is:
Almost Quantum Correlations
By Miguel Navascués, Yelena Guryanova, Matty J. Hoban, and Antonio Acín
Nature Communications 6, 6288 (2015).
The committee awarded the prize to Navascues et al. "for the theoretical discovery of a natural set of stronger-than-quantum correlations, which challenges correlations-based approaches to characterizing quantum theory and hints at potential beyond-quantum physics."
The authors will collect the award and give a talk about the awarded work, followed by drinks and a small buffet. Researchers from all fields of physics and physics students are encouraged to attend! The abstract of the talk will follow here soon.
