X-th Max Born Symposium


Wroclaw - September 24/25/26/27, 1997

Starting in 1991 the Max Born Symposia have been organized by the Institute of Theoretical Physics, University of Wroclaw, to commemorate one of the great men of Quantum Theory, Max Born, born 1883 in Wroclaw, at that time Breslau, where he also started his studies.

The X-th Max Born Symposium entitled Quantum Future has been focused on future applications and possible extensions of Quantum Theory inside and beyond Physics. Today it is without doubt that Quantum Theory occupies a particular place among all scientific theories with its tremendous predictive power on the one side and its puzzles and mysteries on the other side.

The conference has taken place 70 years after the Volta meeting in Como and the V-th Solvay Conference in Brussels - where the dialogue between Bohr and Einstein started. One of the main objectives of this Symposium was to, in this spirit, discuss the alternative approaches to quantum physics in view of applications to the main experimental fields from the quarks to the Cosmos as well as beyond Physics.
