"Causality in the quantum world: harnessing quantum effects in causal inference problems" workshop aims to bring together researchers working on causality, machine learning, artificial intelligence, quantum information and quantum foundations and foster collaborations and the emergence of new and exciting ideas in an interdisciplinary context. The Workshop is organized within the Q-Causal Project Grant ID:61084 funded by the John Templeton Foundation.

The Wokshop topics will cover the latest theoretical developments and experimental implementations of quantum causality and inference problems. We will have keynote, invited an contributed speakers together with a poster session.
