With the support of John Templeton Foundation, the FQXi Foundational Questions Institute and TEQ, Catalina Curceanu, partner and Press Officer of the TEQ Consortium, organized and chaired the “Mini-Symposium Quantum Boundaries: Gravity-Related Collapse Models”. The event, that took place in December 2021 at the INFN premises in Frascati aimed at discussing collapse models proposed as a solution of the measurement problem in quantum mechanics. In particular, gravity-related collapse models were discussed, together with experimental signatures, such as (but not only) the spontaneous radiation predicted by these models.

The program of the event was as follows:

10:00 – 10:20 Catalina Curceanu: Welcome to quantum physics and collapse models (poor Schrodinger cat!)
10:20 – 10:50 Lajos Diosi: Introduction to gravity related collapse models
10:50 – 11:10 Sandro Donadi: Radiation emission in the CSL and the DP models
11:10 – 11:30 Maaneli Derakhshani: Comments on gravitational cat states.

11:30 – 12:00 Coffee Break

12:00 – 12:30 Kristian Piscicchia: Experimental search for collapse signals at Gran Sasso
12:30 – 13:00 Round table – discussion and future plans
