The Quantum Optics and Information Group of Goiânia is a research team of the Institute of Physics of Federal University of Goiás (Brazil) that undertakes research in both theoretical and experimental aspects of quantum mechanics and advanced quantum technologies with future applications in metrology, communication, and computation. Our group originated from the Quantum Optics Group, founded in 1999 by Professor Basilio Baseia, that was primarily focused on the preparation, the study of the properties and the applications of nonclassical states of the electromagnectic field in travelling waves or inside a superconducting cavity. With the incorporation of new researchers to the group: Ardiley T. Avelar (2006 ), Norton G. de Almeida (2009), Wesley B. Cardoso (2010), Lucas C. Céleri (2012) and Rafael M. Gomes (2012), the research lines was greatly expanded including, among other things, the foundations of quantum mechanics, quantum mechanics of open system, optical solitons and optical communications, nonlinear dynamics in Bose-Einstein condensates, quantum (relativistic) thermodynamics, quantum (relativistic) information and experimental quantum optics.
This is the first announcement of the workshop on Relativistic Quantum Information that will take place on June 24-26 2013 at the University of Nottingham. This workshop is going to be the next in the annual series of RQI-North workshops. This years aim is to bring together researchers from a diverse range of backgrounds, including those working in the fields of the Unruh effect, the dynamical Casimir effect, analogue gravity, quantum information theory and foundational physics.

Quinfog is an emerging group on Quantum Information and Foundations of Quantum Mechanics based at the Instituto de Fisica Fundamental in the Spanish Research Council (CSIC). It currently includes three staff members from CSIC, plus a similar number of PhD students and affiliated members from other institutions. Our research focuses on four areas: Quantum Technologies, Relativistic Quantum Information, Quantum Correlations and Quantum Simulation. For further information and job opportunities contact the staff at our webpage.
