Continuing a long tradition of quantum physics in Vienna, the conference brings together leading international researchers in this field to discuss and shape the future of quantum foundations.

The call for poster abstract submission is now open with deadline April the 30th, each poster will be introduced by a flash talk of two minutes. There is no call for contributed talks. The deadline for registration is June 14th. The registration fee is 150 euros.
