Coogee'09 - Sydney Quantum Information Theory Workshop

2-6 February 2009

Coogee Bay Hotel, Coogee, Sydney

  • Three-day special focus: 'Quantum information meets quantum many-body physics', including a tutorial for students (and staff!) on Day 1.
  • Two days on other topics in quantum information.
The main goal, as in previous years, is to get a number of the relevant Australian researchers and research students in the same place at the same time and to discuss what's new. 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, as well as a number of collaborative activities aimed at getting discussions and informal workgroups going. PhD students and postdocs are very welcome and encouraged to participate!!
