The Relativistic Quantum Information – North 2018 Conference at the University of Vienna is held under the auspices of the International Society for Relativistic Quantum Information and is the ninth in the series of such meetings taking place in the Northern Hemisphere. This workshop series aims to bring together researchers working across quantum information science, quantum field theory in curved spacetime, and quantum gravity.
Relativistic Quantum Information (RQI) is a recently-born research field addressing questions at the interplay of quantum information and relativistic physics. On the one hand, RQI aims to extend the applicability of quantum information to regimes in which relativistic effects become relevant. On the other hand, it uses information-related ideas to investigate the fundamental structure of spacetime. RQI is a multidisciplinary research field with far-reaching objectives, going from future large-scale quantum technologies to the understanding of gravity and spacetime at the quantum level.
