The school “Frontiers of Quantum Physics and Quantum Information” aims at providing a comprehensive overview of new and exciting research lines at the frontiers of quantum physics by known experts in the field. It covers a broad spectrum of concepts and questions, from abstract problems in quantum information theory to quantum optics experiments using ultra-cold gases.
The school is open to talented PhD students and young post-docs. The expected number of attendees is 30, who will be selected by an internal committee.
Isaac Newton Institute for Mathematical Sciences, Cambridge, UK
(in association with the Newton Institute programme Mathematical Challenges in Quantum Information, 27 August - 20 December 2013)
In recent years the field of quantum information theory has undergone explosive growth, and progress has been made on many of the most long-standing open problems in the field. Such progress has frequently relied on increasingly sophisticated and diverse mathematical tools. The goal of this workshop is to widely disseminate knowledge of these tools and the underlying mathematics involved, and to discuss exciting new directions for the field.
This School will feature tutorial style lectures introducing themes of broad interest in the areas of cold atoms and molecules, quantum optics and condensed matter physics, quantum information and quantum interference and precision measurements providing a basis for new members of the community and deepening the knowledge of more experienced ones. Additional shorter seminar style talks will give a flavour of current trends in the field.

Title: Tradeoffs Between Thermal and Quantum Fluctuations in 2D Quantum Memories
Under a certain set of conditions collectively known as "local topological order", the low energy spectrum of a system is robust to local perturbations. This has the consequence that quantum information encoded in the degenerate ground state of such a system is stable at zero temperature.
The 10th workshop on Quantum Physics and Logic (QPL) will take place at ICFO in Castelldefels, Barcelona between 17th and 19th JULY 2013.
This workshop will bring together researchers working on mathematical foundations of quantum physics, quantum computing and spatio-temporal causal structures, and in particular those that use logical tools, ordered algebraic and category-theoretic structures, formal languages, semantical methods and other computer science methods for the study of physical behaviour in general.
Previous QPL events were held in Ottawa
Salary: ~38.000€ per annum, according to Marie Curie rules for Early Stage Researchers, depending on host country, family status and pension arrangements
Several PhD (early stage researcher) and post-doctoral (experienced researcher) positions are available within the Initial Training Network QTea, funded by the Marie Curie Actions under the FP7 People programme of the European Commission.
We are looking for young researchers with a strong interest in applications of atomic and optical quantum physics.
