Quantum mechanics has been a constant source of innovation for over a century, and is now opening the door to a new age of information technologies. Identifying the key quantum structures and developing new concepts and methods can accelerate the progress, facilitating the development of new information-processing protocols and the discovery of new connections with other areas of physics.
Early applications for 2017/2018 are now invited for PhD positions at the HKU CS Department, with opening in the Quantum Information, Foundations, and Technologies Group.
The deadline is September 1st 2016.

The Hong Kong Workshop on Quantum Information and Foundations is a conference in the field of Quantum Information Theory with the goal of exploring the power of quantum systems in new scenarios, e.g. in non-causal frameworks. Furthermore, a broad spectrum of topics in Quantum Information Theory, from algorithms to complexity, cryptography and Shannon theory is in the focus of the Workshop. The conference will take place from May 4th-7th 2016 and about 30 renowned speakers will present their recent research.
