Friday, July 31, 2015 Roberto Valandro ## An overview of string theory IVIn the fourth meeting, I will describe the classical string and the spectrum after quantisation and I will review how the string amplitudes are constructed. |

Wednesday, July 22, 2015 Roberto Valandro ## An overview of string theory IIIIn the third meeting, I will describe the classical string and the spectrum after quantisation and I will review how the string amplitudes are constructed. |
Tuesday, July 21, 2015 Shreya Banjee (Tata Institute of Fundamental Research, Mumbai, India) ## Solving problems in cosmology and quantum general relativity using collapse modelsThe success of the inflationary paradigm rests on its ability to explain the observed classicality of primordial quantum fluctuations despite their quantum origin. |

Friday, July 17, 2015 Mr. Farzad Kianvash (Sharif Univeristy of Technology Tehran, Iran, Azadi Ave, Iran) ## Cosmological bounds on CSL parametersCollapse models are phenomenological models which are introduced in order to explain the mechanism of the wave function collapse. |
Tuesday, July 14, 2015 Mr. Jahngir Nobakht (Sharif Univeristy of Technology Tehran, Iran, Azadi Ave, Iran) ## Dissipative CSL ModelContinuous Spontaneous Localization (CSL) is the most refined collapse model which describes the localization of spatial wavefunction of macroscopic objects with the destruction of spatial quantum sup |

Monday, May 11, 2015 Hendrik Ulbricht ## Experimental Tests of Macroscopic Quantum SuperpositionNew technological developments allow to explore the quantum properties of very complex systems, bringing the question of whether also macroscopic systems share such features, within experimental reach |
Thursday, May 7, 2015 Roberto Valandro ## An overview of string theory IIIn this second meeting, I will describe the classical string and the spectrum after quantisation and I will review how the string amplitudes are constructed. |

Wednesday, April 29, 2015 Roberto Valandro ## An overview of string theoryIn this first meeting, I will introduce String Theory. I will first present the historical steps that led to the theory. |
Thursday, April 23, 2015 Mauro Schiulaz ## Localization and non equilibration in quantum disordered systems, from 1958 to yesterdayQuantum disordered many-body systems represent the most spectacular known failure of statistical mechanics. |
