From the 7th to the 11th of July 1997, workshops on Irreversibility and
Cosmology (part I) and on Fundamental Aspects of Quantum Mechanics
(part II) were held in Peyresq, Alpes de Haute-Provence, France. Peyresq is
a medieval Provencal village, situated 100 km from Nice at an altitude of
1528 m. The village was founded in the early 13th century. At the beginning

mainly the UniversiteĀLibre de Bruxelles, under the guidance of Mady and
Toine Smets. The aim was to create a ``Foyer d' Humanisme,'' an international
humanistic center for cultural, artistic, and scientific pursuits.
The Workshop was financed by the Foundation Peyresq, Foyer
d' Humanisme, the Fondation Nicolas Claude Fabri de Peyresq, Olam, the
Fondation pour la Recherche Fondamentale of Belgium, the European Com-
