The goal of this workshop is to present and discuss recent developments in the overlap area between quantum information and foundations of quantum mechanics. The workshop is centered around, but not limited to, the following topics:
Quantum logic beyond Birkhoff and von Neumann
Contextuality and non-locality of quantum mechanics
Measurement-based quantum computation
Quantum mechanics and category theory
QM foundations and cryptography
Contributed talks and posters are invited. Registration and submission are now open!
