GISIN'14 - The Greatest Inspiration Surely Is Nonlocality

With the support of:


8th - 12th September

Would you agree with the following :

  • The world is nonlocal
  • The world is understandable (at least step by step)
  • The key concepts to understand the world can be expressed in simple terms
  • Some of the consequences of the next theory can be tested in low energy physics

If yes, it is my great pleasure to invite you to a nice workshop in the Swiss Alp next September 8-12 to discuss about “nonlocality” and about “macroscopic entanglement” in a relaxed atmosphere.

Location: The event will take place at Art Furrer Hotels in typical Swiss fashion – in the mountains and spas! A programme consisting of a series of long and short talks, interspersed with plenty of time for discussions, is planned to ensure a fascinating and productive time for all!
