This is a field which deals with fundamental problems of physics, and is entangled with philosophical problems, although it is not completely philosophical. Fortunately, foundational problems of physics have recently attracted the attention of some of the first rate physicists of our time. In fact, it has been the research on some of the foundational problems that has led to the development of some new fields, such as quantum information and quantum computers.
A two-day conference on the recent progress in foundations of physics is planned by and held at School of Physics, Institute for Research in Fundamental Sciences (IPM) Tehran. This is intended to provide advanced research information about the on-going activities in the hot topics and on-going activities in the contemporary and the foundations of physics.
The forth conference on Foundations of Physics is devoted to researchers and interested students to discuss and debate on fundamental issues in Quantum Physics and related areas.The conference will be held on 16 and 17 December, 2015.
