Aim:

The Johannes Gutenberg-University of Mainz invites applications for a professorship in experimental quantum optics and quantum information. Applicants should have a strong scientific record in one of these areas. Collaboration with and complement of existing working groups at Mainz, strengthening of the impact of corresponding research networks with participation from the University of Mainz is expected. Appropriate involvement in teaching in experimental physics is mandatory.

On 25-26 June, the Centre for History and Philosophy of Science, Technology and Medicine (CHPSTM), University of Aberdeen, will hold a workshop on 'Quantum States: ontic or epistemic?', with additional generous support from the Scots Philosophical Association.

Registration is free but space is limited, so please email Guido Bacciagaluppi (g.bacciagaluppi (at) abdn.ac.uk) in advance if you wish to attend. Please also indicate if you wish to come to dinner on 25 June.

This event will bring together researchers working on mathematical foundations of quantum physics, quantum computing and information, and spatio-temporal causal structures, and in particular those that use logical tools, ordered algebraic and category-theoretic structures, formal languages, semantical methods and other computer science methods for the study physical behaviour in general.

Physicists have always thought quantum computing is hard because quantum states are incredibly fragile. But could noise and messiness actually help things along?
