Dedicated to the memory of the past presidents of the IQSA:
Peter Mittelstaedt, David J. Foulis, Paul Busch.
The International Quantum Structure Association is pleased to announce that the next Biennial IQSA Conference Quantum Structures 2022 will take place in Tropea, Calabria (Italy), on June 27-July 02, 2022.
The proposed arrival date is Sunday, the 26th of June, and the date of departure is Sunday, the 3rd of July.
Quantum Structures 2022 Tropea is a major international conference integrating all fields of quantum mechanics and its applications. It provides an important opportunity for young researchers to disseminate their results and to obtain feedback both from their peers and from senior members of the community. Owing to its interdisciplinary and foundational character, the objective of the conference is to encourage communication between researchers throughout the world whose research is related to
- quantum structures and their applications in physics, mathematics and philosophy
- logico-algebraic structures, orthomodular structures, quantum logics, empirical logics, operational structures
- quantum mechanics
- quantum measurements
- quantum computation, quantum information, quantum communication
- general probabilistic models
- phase space quantum mechanics and quantization
- philosophy of quantum mechanics
- quantum probability
- interdisciplinary applications of quantum structures
The conference has the following complementary themes:
- Algebraic methods of quantum mechanics
- Foundations of quantum mechanics
- Quantum information and computation theory
- Philosophy and history of quantum mechanics
- Interdisciplinary applications of quantum structures
- Arriving day: June 26th, 2022
- First official day: June 27th, 2022
- Last official day: July 2th, 2022
- Leaving day: July 3th, 2022
The conference continues the successful meetings held in:
- Gdansk 1990;
- Castiglioncello 1992;
- Prague 1994;
- Berlin 1996;
- Liptovsky Jan 1998;
- Cesenatico 2001;
- Vienna 2002;
- Denver 2004;
- Malta 2006;
- Brussels-Gdansk 2008;
- Boston 2010;
- Cagliari 2012;
- Olomouc 2014;
- Leicester 2016;
- Kazan 2018.
The proceedings of the Conference Quantum Structures 2022 will be published in a special issue of International Journal of Theoretical Physics (Springer) and in a special issue of the journal Entropy. Submission instructions will be provided later.

The closest airport is the Lamezia Terme airport which is at about 60 km from Tropea. A bus service from the airport to the Hotel will be available (the cost depends on the number of persons travelling and can go from 20 to 60 euros). If you are interested in the bus service, you are invited to contact directly the Hotel Tropis to arrange your transfer. The Hotel will try to organize the bus service in order to collect 6-8 persons at a time. That would contain cost at about 25 euros.
A cheaper connection is by train from Lamezia Terme to Tropea. There is a train from Lamezia Terme railway station to Tropea every hour (it takes about 1 hour to get to Tropea and costs about 4,20 euros). There is a bus service from Lamezia Terme airport to Lamezia Terme railway station (1,50 euros). Hotel Tropis is at about 350 meters from the railway station.
An alternative option to get to Tropea is to arrive by flight to Naples (which is cheaper than the flight to Lamezia terme) and then to Tropea by train (usually one or two changes). Naples airport is well connected to the railway station by bus (5 euros) which takes 20 minutes. The train from Naples to Tropea will take about 4,5-6,5 hours at variance with the time and the day. Look at the Trenitalia website for information www.trenitalia.it
Once you are in Tropea you can use the Tropea Express to move along the Tyrrhenian coast for very cheap prices.
The Hotel Tropis, which will host the conference, booked in advance a number of rooms for the conference guests.
Rates reserved to the Conference guests:
|Single Room plus breakfast (1 person)||€ 83,00 per day|
|Double room plus breakfast (2 persons)||€ 140,00 per day.|
In order to book the Hotel you are invited to contact the Hotel at the e-mail address: email@example.com.
You will be asked to pay in advance the 30% of the total cost of the booking. You will be able to delete for free the reservation until one week before the date of the event.
Other Possible Accomodations
In Tropea you will find several B&B that you can book by yourselves. We suggest you to book in advance (as soon as possible) in order to be sure to get a room and to get a good price. Most of them do not require payment in advance and the reservation can be deleted until one month before the event.
Those who prefer to arrange their lodging by themselves, which can be easily done by internet, may find some suggestions in the following websites:
