    - Theoretical and experimental investigation of quantum non-locality
    - Bell-type and Leggett-type entanglements
    - New formalisms of quantum mechanics
    - New applications of Bohmian mechanics
    - New interpretations of quantum mechanics
    - Many-worlds interpretation of quantum mechanics
    - Quantum thermodynamics
    - Macroscopic quantum systems
    - Decoherence theory
    - Principles of quantum chaos
    - Fundamental problems in general and special relativity
    - Fundamental problems of cosmology
    - Principles of dark matter and dark energy
    - Realism in the modern physics
    - Concept of information and entropy
    - Concept of order in modern physics
    - Role of information in modern sciencev
    - Concept of time in different contexts (thermodynamics, cosmology and ...)
    - Quantum biology
    - Evolution and natural selection in modern biology
    - Consciousness in modern physics

    The researchers interested to present their work for us in our monthly seminars, please contact Dr. Afshin Shafiee: afshin.shafiee at gmail.com
