The workshop is devoted to latest developments in quantum information:

- topological quantum computation, monoidal categories, modular functors, topological quantum field theory, quantum knots, anyons and fractional quantum Hall effect.
- measurement based quantum computation and optical lattices.
- adiabatic quantum computation and Josephson junction.
- simulation of physical systems, frustration free models, matrix product states and AKLT.
- measures of entanglement and spin chains.
- quantum state transfer

The Laboratoire d'Information Quantique at the University of Brussels invites applications for a postdoctoral position. The group is composed of two faculty members, Serge Massar and Stefano Pironio, whose research interests cover both theoretical and experimental aspects of quantum information science.

We are currently offering a postdoctoral position and two PhD positions to highly motivated and well-qualified young researchers who intend to enhance their scientific career in the field of Quantum Information Theory and/or Quantum Optics. The positions are associated with the research group of Barbara Kraus at the Institute for Theoretical Physics, University of Innsbruck, Austria. The appointed candidates could start at their earliest convenience.
