This is the third of a series of conferences which were organized previously in Valencia and Okazaki. In the next conference in Pisa emphasis will be given to the properties of quantum walks also in relations to quantum simulations.
The list of invited speakers include: A. Alberti (Bonn), M. Barbieri (Oxford) T. Busch (Cork), C. Gross (Munich), M. Lewenstein (Barcelona), M. Inguscio (Firenze), S. Lloyd (Cambridge, USA), V. Pellegrini (Pisa), B. Sanders (Calgary), F. Sciarrino (Roma), C. Silberhorn (Paderborn), E. Solano (Bilbao), R.F. Werner (Hannover).
Postdoctoral 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.
Research Associate in Quantum Coherence in Non-equilibrium Light Matter Systems
UCL, Physics and Astronomy
Salary (inclusive of London allowance) £32,375 - £39,132 per annum
Start: as soon as possible
Duties and Responsibilities:
The main aim of this project is to explore novel emergent phenomena in far from equilibrium quantum systems with a particular focus on light-matter systems such as microcavity polaritons, quantum spins, circuit and cavity QED systems. There are two Research Associates positions available on this project.
This program will deal with quantum cryptography, quantum computing and quantum repeaters. The goal of this event is to introduce this exciting topic in a relaxed and stimulating atmosphere to a general audience of physicists and computer scientists with little or no background in practical quantum communications. Special emphasis will be placed on practical aspects of quantum communications, such as the implementation of Quantum Key distribution systems and quantum repeaters, as well as concrete steps towards a quantum computer.
Applications are invited for a 2-3 years long postdoctoral position to work with Dr. Andrzej Dragan on the interdisciplinary field of relativistic quantum information. The research is aiming at exploiting relativity to improve quantum information tasks and studying quantum information protocols in the presence of gravity. Candidates must be motivated, confident and creative. They must have a PhD in physics and experience with quantum theory and relativity. Knowledge of quantum information and quantum optics is also desirable.

This inaugural workshop of the Centre for Quantum Mathematics and Computation will seek to take stock of contemporary foundational ideas in mathematics, computer science, and physics. Alongside invited talks by world experts, informal events will be held, such as problem sessions and research planning activities. Particular attention will be devoted to the organizing role played by logical structures, and how this illuminates our understanding of such diverse areas as quantum field theory, geometry, semantics of computation, and quantum information.

Description of the research: The research concerns with the theoretical study of the dynamical Casimir and Casimir-Polder effect, in particular the possibility of detecting these effects using Rydberg atoms, which are characterized by high polarizabilities and appropriate transition frequencies. More specifically, we plan to study the dynamics and the excitation probability of Rydberg atoms with high principal quantum number (n>50) trapped near an oscillating plate, or a plate whose refractive index is periodically changed (dynamical mirror).
The meeting will showcase highlights in quantum algorithms research. We will have two days of outstanding speakers invited from around the world to talk about their recent work. Continuing the success of previous events, we expect the discussions to be lively and informative.
