This event marks the end of the EU FP6 STREP QICS on Foundational Structures in Quantum Computation and Information. It consists on extended tutorials on the main research strands within QICS, namely:

  • Structures and methods for measurement-based quantum computation
  • Categorical semantics, logics, diagrammatic methods
  • Classical-quantum interaction and information flow
  • Quantum automata, machines, calculi

The unavoidable presence of noise is thought to be one of the major problems to solve in order to pave the way for implementing quantum information technologies in realistic physical platforms. However, here we show a clear example in which noise, in terms of dephasing, may enhance the capability of transmitting not only classical but also quantum information, encoded in quantum systems, through communication networks.
