Sixth Canadian Summer School on Quantum Information Processing

  • Start Date: 08/07/2006
  • End Date: 08/12/2006

University of Calgary


The goal of this summer school is to introduce a general audience of computer scientists, physicists, and mathematicians with little or no background in quantum information processing to this exciting and growing field.
Quantum information processing lies at the intersection of computer science, physics, and mathematics and concerns information processing that depends on quantum mechanical effects. It aims at understanding the principles of quantum mechanics and how they can be used for computations and in communication. It is an interdisciplinary area that brings together theorists and experimentalists. This summer school is an invitation to anybody interested in hearing, learning, and discussing about this exciting new field with excellent communicators and researchers in the area.
The school consists of five consecutive days of talks that cover the basics of quantum information processing as well as more advanced topics, including:

  • Quantum information theory
  • Quantum algorithms and lower bounds
  • Implementations and models
  • Quantum communication, nonlocality, interactions
