Tests of foundational concepts in quantum mechanics, such as entanglement, and Bell in equality violation have been extensively tested at ~eV scales using photons and solid state systems. However such tests could also be - and now are starting to be - performed at the highest energy scales explored by colliders. 

Following on from the first Oxford workshop in March 2023, this workshop brings together theorists and experimentalists with philosophers of physics to explore how these measurements can be performed and what they can tell us about the underlying description of nature. 

Due to space constraints at the venue the numbers are limited, so participation will be by invitation.
