Conference at Western

6 - 10 June 2022

This conference will bring together theorists, philosophers and experimentalists interested in the conceptual basis needed for understanding quantum spacetime, and in the relevance of quantum information to this aim. It will also bring together members of the QISS consortium to foster new collaborations.
