MESSAGE FROM THE ORGANIZING COMMITTEE
Dear participants, the coronavirus emergency forces us to shift the conference to the next year. We are still under quarantine here in Italy and the lockdown of all the activities is going to be extended. We are not able to predict what will be the situation in June-July. Moreover, in the most optimistic scenario, we will not be able to make the organizing process to start again in time. We are sorry for that and hope you will understand. We wish you and your families all the best in this dramatic period for our societies.
The next IQSA conference will take place in Tropea during the summer 2022. We hope to embrace you all in Tropea the next year.
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 2020 will take place in Tropea, Calabria (Italy), on June 29-July 04, 2020.
The proposed arrival date is Sunday, the 28th of June, and the date of departure is Sunday, the 5th of July.
Quantum Structures 2020 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
- 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 28th, 2020
- First official day: June 29th, 2020

Local Organizing Committee:
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.
