Dates: 
19 Jan 2015 - 23 Jan 2015
Location: 
University Park, Nottingham, United Kingdom
Deadlines
Registration deadline: 
15 Nov 2014
Submission deadline: 
15 Nov 2014

The workshop will cover a broad range of topics in quantum control, from fundamental questions to technological applications. It will consist of a first part focused on information-theoretic aspects of quantum control and complexity, and a second part focused on experimental challenges and nuclear magnetic resonance applications.

The workshop will gather experts and early stage researchers, fostering discussions and exchanges. There will be tutorial lectures, invited and contributed talks, a poster session, and an industry session.

The workshop runs from 19 to 23 January 2015 at the University of Nottingham (United Kingdom), and is jointly supported by the QUAINT Network, the EPSRC, and the Foundational Questions Institute (FQXi).
