Revolutionary quantum phenomena like superposition, wave-particle duality, uncertainty principle, entanglement and non-locality are today well-established, albeit continuing debates remain about the profound understanding of their manifestation. Further, these concepts have been enabling a quantum technological revolution. This Royal Society Scientific Discussion Meeting aims at gathering the most relevant recent advances on the foundations of quantum mechanics, highlighting their multidisciplinary impact on contemporary society.

QIP Limit
Quantum Information Processing with severely Limited memory and communication

Positions available:
1 PhD student position is currently available in this project.

Project scope:
Study of quantum information processing in the case when communication and memory are limited to just a few qubits.

We are interested in doing this mainly in the context of the three following fields: Foundations, Quantum Information, and Communication Complexity.

The Conference focuses on causality and non-locality in physics, and the insurgence of situations where it appears that causality can be violated, with emphasis on their relation with time machines. There are three main objectives before this conference:

A postgraduate student conference on Mathematical Techniques for Quantum Physics will take place in Nottingham (U.K.) from 7 - 9 November 2012.

The conference will emphasise quantum information, quantum gravity and quantum disordered systems. Respectively, the invited speakers from each area are:
*Nilanjana Datta (Cambridge),
*Samuel Braunstein (York), and
*Karoline Wiesner (Bristol).

Dates: 
Saturday, October 13, 2012
Submission deadline:

The conference focuses on causality and nonlocality in physics, with emphasis on its implications with time machines. In particular this issue will be dealt with from the viewpoints of General Relativity and Quantum Mechanics, two theories that, even though extensively verified on their own, are seemingly irreconcilable up today.

Post-Doctoral fellowships at the Institute for Quantum Computing

The Institute for Quantum Computing is inviting applications for postdoctoral positions in all aspects of quantum information processing, bridging areas from fundamental theory to physical implementations.
