This is an event organized by the CRG in Mathematics of Quantum Information
This summer school on quantum information marks the 10th anniversary of the highly renowned series. Previous events (2001-2009) were held in Toronto, Montreal, Calgary, and Waterloo. It follows the tradition of educating young researchers (prospective and current graduate students, as well as post-docs) on the rapidly-evolving field of quantum information science and brings together the world's experts from different areas.
This year the emphasis will be on quantum algorithms and models of quantum computation, with particular attention to mathematical methods. It will include one advanced topic which is not so traditional for a summer school in quantum information, namely “foundational aspects of quantum mechanics”.
The Summer School will consist of a 5-day block and a 4-day block. Embedded between these two blocks, the Workshop on Quantum Algorithms, Computational Models, and Foundations of Quantum Mechanics will take place, thus giving students a rare learning opportunity to see real-world applications of quantum information science research. For details on the workshop, please visit the workshop event page. N.B. Participants who have registered for this summer school are automatically registered for the workshop.
