We invite you to participate in "The International Meeting on Quantum Foundations and Quantum Information 2011" (QFQI) 2011. The meeting will be held at Seoul National University from November 16 - 17, 2011.

The purpose of this meeting is to promote exchanges of ideas and discussions among leading scientists and students working on the foundations of quantum mechanics and quantum information.

The program includes open plenary session, invited talks and poster presentations covering a broad range of topics:

The next Q+ hangout is on the coming Tuesday:

Speaker: Prof. Andreas Winter, Bristol University
Date: 27th of September, 14:00 BST
Title: Zero-error communication via quantum channels, non-commutative graphs and a quantum Lovasz theta-function
Abstract: I will review some of the recent progress on the zero-error capacity problem for quantum channels, centered mainly around my work with Runyao Duan and Simone Severini [1002.2514], which suggests an extension of graphs and graph notions into the non-commutative domain.
