The conference Towards Ultimate Quantum Theory (UQT) is arranged by International Centre for Mathematical Modelling in physics, engineering and cognitive sciences (ICMM) at Linnaeus University in Växjö, Sweden. This is the 19th Växjö conference devoted to quantum foundations and applications of quantum theory, especially quantum information and probability. It is devoted to quantum foundations (including philosophical issues), experiment, and recently developed quantum technologies (with emphasize of their foundational aspects).
On behalf of the International Association of Mathematical Physics, the International Scientific Committee, and the Local Organizing Committee we invite you to participate in the XIX International Congress on Mathematical Physics to be held in Montreal, Quebec, Canada from July 23 to July 28. The International Congress of Mathematical Physics (ICMP), on its three year cycle, is the most important conference of the International Association of Mathematical Physics. The ICMP 2018 will be a major event, where new results and future challenges will be discussed, illustrating the richness and vitality of Mathematical Physics.
Following a tradition started in London in 2000, the ICMP 2018 will be preceded by the Young Researchers Symposium (July 20 and 21, 2018). Seven satellite meetings are being organized in Banff, Toronto, Montreal, and Perimeter Institute either before or after ICMP 2018.
We hope that you will be able to attend and contribute to the success of the meeting.
We are looking forward to see you in Montreal, Quebec, Canada in 2018.

Robert Seiringer, Chair
President of the International Association of Mathematical Physics, and Chair of the International Scientific Committee
The aim of this meeting is to bring together scientists interested in the challenging problems connected with the dynamics of out of equilibirum classical and quantum physical systems from both theoretical and experimental point of view, within an interdisciplinary context.
Specifically, three main areas of out-of-equilibrium statistical mechanics will be covered: long range interactions and multistability, anomalous diffusion, and quantum systems.
Moreover, the conference will be a discussion forum to promote new ideas in this fertile field of research, and in particular new trends such as quantum thermodynamics and novel types of quantum phase transitions occurring in non-equilibrium steady states, and topological phase transitions.
The growing ability to manipulate quantum systems is paving the way for a second quantum revolution and a number of initiatives worldwide have been formed to foster quantum technologies. These exciting novel applications are exploiting specific quantum properties which are not accessible with classical resources such as superposition and entanglement of individual quantum systems.
The objectives of the QTech conference is to present the latest developments of quantum technologies in the domains of quantum communication, computation, simulation, sensors and metrology, and their implementation using various platforms from atoms and ions to solid states, superconducting circuits and optics. Topics: Quantum information processing and computing Quantum simulation Quantum sensors and quantum metrology Quantum communication Fundamental science for quantum technologies Atom and ion trapping Superconducting circuits Quantum optics and non-classical light sources Solid states and hybrid systems
We are pleased to announce the 9th International Conference DICE2018 "Spacetime - Matter - Quantum Mechanics", to be held at Castello Pasquini (Castiglioncello, Tuscany, Italy) September 17–21, 2018.
Topics for DICE2018 are defined by (but not limited to) overlapping interests in:
quantum foundations / information emergent spacetime / matter / symmetries quantum coherence from micro- to macroscopic new key experiments quantum mechanics interfacing with gravity quantum gravity / cosmology and high-energy physics.
