About QISS

QISS is a cross-disciplinary fundamental research initiative in the broader fields of Quantum Information and Quantum Gravity, aiming to put the physics of quantum spacetime on an information theoretical basis, bring within reach empirical access to quantum gravity in 'table-top' laboratory conditions, and promote an extensive interaction between physicists and philosophers. The central goal of the collaboration is to deepen the current understanding of this slippery but crucial notion, that is rapidly taking a central role in our understanding of the structure of reality: Information.

The QISS Lesvos 2020 Workshop, titled "QISS: Physics Needs Philosophy", is the 2nd workshop held by an interdisciplinary consortium of thirteen research groups, for a three year project supported by the John Templeton Foundation. See the website of the project The Quantum Information Structure of Spacetime for more information.
