Quantum Theory Without Observers III

Date: April 22 - 26, 2013

Convenors: Philippe Blanchard (Bielefeld, GER), Detlef Dürr (München, GER), Michael-Andreas Esfeld (Lausanne, SUI), GianCarlo Ghirardi (Triest, ITA), Sheldon Goldstein (Piscataway, USA) und Tim Maudlin (New York, USA)

The international conference 'Quantum Theory Without Observers' was held within the COST Action MP1006, Fundamental Problems in Quantum Physics. The title of the conference refers to a quote from John Stuart Bell, who advocated the need for new Quantum Theories which do not make reference to the a priori, hence undefined, observer. The observer was used in formulations of Quantum Mechanics by Heisenberg and Bohr, but because they are in principle undefined objects, the so called Copenhagen view of Quantum mechanics gave rise to a debate, which lasted almost a century. At the conference new theories which do not have such defects were discussed. There were only few talks and much time for discussion which involved all participants.
