Dear Colleagues welcome to VVoIP_Physics_Debates website and the upcoming online colloquium titled:

2nd Quantum Theory Interpretations Debate
Sep 6th - 7th and/or
October 4th - 5th, 2019

The VVoIP stands for Voice and Video over Internet Protocol and allows everyone to participate at low-budget directly from your office in a scientific panel discussion on the subjects related to your interests and research.

The VVoIP_Physics_Debates are effective, convenient, and inexpensive video-conferencing encouraging the free and effective exchange of ideas, concepts and research results. 

Indeed we offer you "science in sleepers" by promoting world-class research exchange in a modern way and easy to use/reliable modern communication. We ask you to join us and actively participate. Meet experts & influencers face to face.

We describe below all pertinent information. However, do not hesitate to ask our supporting organizational staff.

Kind regards, Organizational Committees.


The 2nd Quantum Theory Interpretations is a forum for the Debate of leading scientists about what they believe but not necessarily can prove it (not yet). The basic modus operandi behind the Debate is to gather the most brilliant minds in the world in a virtual room, "lock" them in and have them ask each other the questions they were asking themselves. The meeting will be focused on being an international panel discussion form for the presentation and discussion of frontier research in Interpretations of Quantum Theory. We are looking for excellence and scientific leadership. The leadership starts in the mind, where ideas precede actions. We aspire to formulate leap forward questions, a big questions program, rather than communicating transient findings.

Scientific Committee

Dr. Matteo (Matt) Ferensby - Coordinator and Moderator.

Look for updates.


The entire meeting will take a form of the PANEL DISCUSSION and will concern interpretations of quantum theory.

An interpretation of quantum mechanics is an attempt to explain how concepts in quantum mechanics correspond to reality. Although quantum mechanics has held up to rigorous and thorough experimental testing, many of these experiments are open to different interpretations. There exist a number of contending schools of thought, different over whether quantum mechanics can be understood to be deterministic, which elements of quantum mechanics can be considered "real", and other matters.

The colloquium will take place on Sep. 6th-7th and/or October 4th through 5th 2019.

Colloquium Fees

Early Registration

(before September 15th, 2019)

Late Registration

(after September 15th, 2019)

Junior researchers, postdocs & Ph.D. students €249 €380
Senior Researchers €349 €499

Note that the fee is given in € (Euro). We cannot accept cash payments. Every transaction must go through the bank account. The payments via www.PayPal.com are also welcome. Registration date = date the organizer accounting registers conference fee payment.

The participants agree to furnish seven hundred eighty-five € (net) to cover editorial work required for editing video recording and publication of the debate proceedings. The Lecturer agrees to wire the mentioned payment no later than seven days after the debate date.
