Sydney Quantum Information Theory Workshop

15 - 18 January 2013

Coogee Bay Hotel, Coogee, Sydney

This will be a small, focussed workshop bringing together leading and up-and-coming international and Australian researchers and research students in quantum information theory. The aim is to present new results (or even new research directions without results yet) with lots of time to discuss. The program will consist of a limited number of invited talks with considerable time for discussion. PhD students and postdocs are very welcome and encouraged to participate.

The workshop will focus on the connections between quantum information and many-body physics, as well as selected topics from quantum computation and quantum information theory.
