AAV Anniversary Conference. Chapman University (California, USA) hosted on March 1st - 2nd a celebratory conference commemorating the 30th anniversary of the first paper on weak values and quantum weak measurements by Yakir Aharonov, David Albert, and Lev Vaidman ("How the result of a measurement of a component of a spin-1/2 particle can turn out to be 100", Phys. Rev. Lett. 60:1351, 1988). This symposium was held in the presence of Yakir Aharonov and Lev Vaidman. It surveyed the development of weak values, and explored the current debates about their foundational significance and practical applications. NaXys researcher Yves Caudano was invited to present the latest results of his group on the investigation of the quantum three-box paradox based on weak measurements of photon pairs.
