Quantum Roundabout is a postgraduate conference whose 3rd edition will be held between the 11th and 13th of July of 2018 at the School of Mathematical Sciences of The University of Nottingham.

This event intends to bring together early career researchers, working at the crossroads between quantum physics and applied mathematics, providing them with an opportunity to network and interact with their peers in related areas, as well as a handful of recognised experts.

The conference is organised by PhD students and open to PhD students and post-docs from universities all over the world. This edition aims to cover the theory and applications of three active research areas of quantum physics, all intimately interconnected, namely:

- Mathematical Foundations of Quantum Thermodynamics
- Frontiers of Quantum Information and Shannon Theory
- Quantum Estimation Theory for Quantum Technologies

Three leading researchers:
- Prof Jonathan Oppenheim,
- Dr Nilanjana Datta,
- Prof Matteo Paris,
have been invited to give lectures/tutorials on these cutting-edge topics. Moreover, a flexible programme with room for up to 24 contributed talks and a dedicated poster session has been devised to encourage an active contribution from all early career participants. There will be an entertaining social programme as well.

*Applications are welcome!* Registration is currently open (deadline on April 6, 2018) at: https://quantumroundabout.weebly.com

Once you get notification that your contribution is accepted, you may proceed to pay the registration fee, which is only 60£ and will cover accommodation, breakfast and lunch throughout the conference and the conference social which will include the conference dinner (participants are expected to pay for their travel to and from the conference).
