Today the Quantiki team (from left to right: Jarek Miszczak, Daniel Burgarth, Piotr Gawron) celebrates the 10th birthday of the site. Meeting at Institute of Theoretical and Applied Informatics, Polish Academy of Sciences, we discussed our achievements and exciting upcoming new features. We also ate an immense amount of tasty strawberries.

We are organising a workshop on quantum networks sponsored by the Foundational Questions Institute (FQXI) under the project "Quantum Bayesian networks: the physics of nonlocal events”. This will the last in a series of three workshops, the first of which took place in Barcelona (http://qbnetworks.icfo.eu/), and the second in Natal, Brazil (http://iip.ufrn.br/eventsdetail.php?inf===QTUVkM).

Open permanent position at Telecom ParisTech
Associate Professor on Quantum Information and Post Quantum Cryptography

The Quantum Information and Applications (IQA) group of Telecom Paristech is conducting a research activity centered on quantum information, quantum communication and cryptography. This research combines theoretical work on quantum information, communication and quantum cryptographic protocols with the development of an experimental platform allowing experimental demonstrations of quantum communication protocols.

Application deadline:

Applications are invited for the above post to work with Professor Gerardo Adesso on an ERC Starting Grant project entitled “Genuine quantumness in cooperative phenomena” funded by the European Research Council. The principal goal of the project is to analyse and challenge the quantum-classical border from a jointly fundamental and applicative viewpoint. The project is expected to deliver novel tools for the characterisation of quantumness in composite systems and to develop novel platforms for its practical utilisation in quantum technology applications.

The study of quantum coherent dynamics is currently one of the most active and exciting areas in physics. It holds the promise for the development of new technologies (quantum computing, quantum metrology,...) and, at the same time, has already delivered insights into the foundations of quantum mechanics. Its fast moving pace, in both theory and experiment, has attracted many young researchers and summer schools have become an integral part of the education and networking of students.
