Workshop on Applications of Quantum Information in QFT and Cosmology

  • Start Date: 11/21/2021
  • End Date: 11/24/2021

University of Lethbridge


In recent years, quantum information theory (QIT) has become a melting pot between disparate branches of physics. Within the last decade, tools and techniques from QIT are bringing new perspectives into fields such as quantum field theory (QFT) and cosmology, and are inspiring new questions and new research directions.


The goal of this workshop is to highlight how different tools and techniques of QIT are providing new ideas and insights about quantum field theory, quantum many-body systems, and cosmology.


Because of travel restrictions due to the pandemic, we currently expect the workshop will be a blend of hybrid and online formats. Our goal is to encourage interaction among participants, especially including between researchers and students, to enhance innovative ideas in Quantum Information Theory, Quantum Field Theory and Cosmology.
