Welcome

About this workshop

Quantum information science (QIS) extends classical information science to regimes where quantum effects such as superposition and entanglement are important. QIS has been one of the most intellectually exciting areas for several decades and still displays enormous potential for growth. This workshop will concentrate on quantum information science, the foundations of quantum mechanics, as well as quantum causal networks, intending to promote cross-disciplinary interactions.

The workshop covers the following topics.
  • Quantum information
  • Quantum computation
  • Quantum statistics
  • Quantum networks
  • Quantum foundations
