Workshop on quantum algorithms, computational models, and foundations of quantum mechanics

  • Start Date: 07/23/2010
  • End Date: 07/25/2010

University of British Columbia


This three-day workshop will focus on the mathematical aspects of quantum information: algorithms, computational models and foundations of quantum mechanics. It will serve as a focal point for experts in quantum information science to present their cutting edge research. The interdisciplinary nature and the industrial relevance of the topic will provide novel opportunities for researchers from different disciplines to exchange ideas and develop collaborations with a lasting impact, which may result in industrial applications. The workshop is a part of the 10th Canadian Summer School on Quantum Information, Summer school participants are automatically registered for this workshop and do not need to sign up again on this page.


This workshop is a satellite event to the 10th Canadian Summer School on Quantum Information ( ). This research workshop is an informal successor to two previous workshops, namely (1) Workshop "Graph Theory and Quantum Information:Emerging Connections" held at Perimeter Institute Waterloo, April 28 - May 2, 2008, and (2) QICS Workshop on "Foundational Structures for Quantum Information and Computation" September 14-20,2008, Obergurgl, Tyrol, Austria.
