Quantum Indeterminacy Workshop

12-13 July 2019

The goal of the workshop is to bring together scholars working on the question of whether quantum mechanics requires genuine indeterminacy in the world, and if so, how to understand that indeterminacy. Informally, physicists use various locutions to describe quantum superposition, such as a particle "being in two places at once" or "acting like a wave." But what does this mean? Does it mean that the particle in some sense lacks a  precise location? This has been an area of active recent research, with some scholars arguing for particular accounts of the nature of quantum indeterminacy, and others arguing that, despite appearances, quantum mechanics requires no indeterminacy in the world.
