From July 25 – 27, the 2013 Summer School will be held at ICFO - the Institute of Photonic Sciences in Spain.
The school “Frontiers of Quantum Physics and Quantum Information” aims at providing a comprehensive overview of new and exciting research lines at the frontiers of quantum physics by known experts in the field. It covers a broad spectrum of concepts and questions, from abstract problems in quantum information theory to quantum optics experiments using ultra-cold gases. Lectures will be given by Antonio Acín, Immanuel Bloch, Ignacio Cirac, Mikhail Lukin and Frank Verstraete.
The school is open to talented PhD students and young post-docs. The expected number of attendees is 30, who will be selected by an internal committee. Accommodation and some travel support will be covered by the organization.
Deadline for registration is June 15th at http://quantumfrontiers.icfo.es/
Please feel free to circulate the call among those you feel might be interested.
