Sydney Quantum Information Theory Workshop

20-24 February 2006

Coogee Bay Hotel, Coogee, Sydney

The workshop aims to bring together researchers and students in the Australian quantum information theory community, along with several international visitors, to interact and start some new collaborations.

The research focus of the workshop will be quantum information theory. Although the majority of the participants are likely to be physicists, researchers in quantum information theory with backgrounds in computer science, mathematics, and engineering are very welcome.

The format of the workshop will be focussed on actively working together on problems, with a limited number of research talks.

International Participants:

    • Robin Blume-Kohout (Caltech)
    • Barry Sanders (University of Calgary)
    • Robert Spalek (CWI)
    • Jay Gambetta (Yale)


Registration is now closed.
