SCIAMA LECTURE | Quantum Mechanics and Reality: the Schism in Modern Physics, from 1927 to the Present Day

Quantum mechanics is singular among physical theories in that it does not make clear statements about what actually exists. Physicist Antony Valentini of  Clemson University will discuss how the uncertainty principle and 'quantum superposition' appear to challenge conventional ideas about reality and how these challenges may be overcome by a theory of 'hidden variables' containing a wealth of potentially new and radical physics.

The European Research Council

An APRE training workshop by Serena Borgna, National Contact Point Horizon 2020 for ERC - European Research Council, SC2 - Food security, sustainable agriculture and forestry, marine and maritime and inland water research and the bioeconomy, NMBP - Nanotechnologies, Advanced Materials, Biotechnology and Advanced Manufacturing and Processing. The event, organised by SISSA and OGS, will be held, in Italian, at SISSA, room 128 (1st floor), starting from 9 am.


A new appointment within the Navigando initiative to talk about designing the ship of the future by new emerging technologies, shape optimisation techniques, digital twin(s) and HPC solutions. With Christian Veldhuis (MARIN), Matteo Diez (CNR INM) and Antonio Traverso (CETENA).

The event is free, but registration is encouraged at mareFVG.

Around the streets

New appointment of the series “If I knew how to take a good pic, I would always do it” by Giuseppe Mussardo and Andrea Tomicich.

The event will focus on street photography, where images are capable of capturing a mood or a specific moment that words could not easily describe. It will analyse the work of photographers like Henri Cartier-Bresson, Robert Doisneau, Brassaï, Vivian Maier, Gianni Berengo Gardin, Lee Friedlander.
