You can download here (as .pdf files) the programme for the conference and the abstracts for the talks.

The conference was held in the traditional meeting room of the Royal Danish Academy of Sciences and Letters, H.C. Andersens Boulevard 35, near Tivoli in central Copenhagen. It was in this room that Niels Bohr led the meetings – with an interruption during the Second World War – as President of the Academy from 1939 until his death in 1962. The arrangement was covered in part by a generous grant from the Carlsberg Foundation.
