We are delighted to announce that the *First Colloquium of the French Groupe de Recherche 'Information Quantique: Fondements et Applications' (GDR - IQFA)* will take place *from the 23th to the 25th of March 2011 at the University of Nice - Sophia Antipolis*, in the Theater of the "Big Castle" (Campus Valrose).

'''Aim and Scope of the Colloquium'''

Jon Cartwright at PhysicsWorld writes: ''Two independent groups have demonstrated how a pair of entangled photons can transfer their entanglement to and from a solid – the process that should one day form the backbone of so-called quantum memories or repeaters. These devices would enable quantum communication systems to transmit information over larger distances, with significantly reduced degradation.''

Quantum Gases and Quantum Information Group at the University of Amsterdam is looking for a talented PhD student to work on '''Nanoscale magnetic trap arrays: quantum simulators on an atom chip'''.

The quest for a complete set of physical or information-theoretic principles that capture the essence of quantum information processing is attracting an increasing number of researchers. This new research trend aims at deriving quantum protocols and connections between them directly from basic principles, without assuming quantum theory and its mathematical dowry of Hilbert spaces and observable algebras.

Macquarie University in Sydney, Australia is seeking to fill 5, 3-yr postdoctoral posts (2 Experiment, 3 Theory), in the areas of

* Diamond Quantum Science
* Quantum Nanophotonics
* Hybrid Quantum Engineering
* Theoretical Quantum Simulations
* Topological or Many-Body Quantum Science

The quantum optics laboratory at the Department of Physics at the Technical University of Denmark (DTU) is searching for highly dedicated and motivated postdocs to join the young and dynamic research group http://www.quin.fysik.dtu.dk

A three-year PhD scholarship within the field of quantum sensing is available at the Department of Physics at the Technical University of Denmark. The topic of the project is the theoretical and experimental investigation of a micro-cavity on a chip for the generation of quantum light to be used for sensing. The project is a part of an international collaboration with the Max-Planck institute for the science of light in Germany and Queensland University in Australia.

Often we hear from young researchers that they have violated a Bell inequality with their new source by this and this factor. In such cases we usually forget about three basic underlying assumptions. Two of them are well known; Realism stating that outcomes of measurements exist before they are revealed in a measuring act and Locality forbidding superluminal communication between spatially separated laboratories. The third important assumption is Freedom exercised by the observers to choose their local measurements independently of each other.

The Electronics Materials Branch at the Naval Research Laboratory (NRL) in Washington, DC, seeks candidates for post doctoral positions in the theory of solid implementations for quantum information. Areas of current interest include quantum dots and coupled quantum dots, photons and microcavities, NV centers in diamond, quantum gates and decoherence.

This special issue of International Journal Of Quantum Information is aimed to collect papers addressing both fundamental problems and applications, thus offering to readers comprehensive and up-to-date overview on the characterization and use of quantum correlations. We welcome papers that address fundamental aspects of quantum and classical correlations in discrete and continuous variable systems, propose implementations to make quantitative measurements of quantum correlations, or describe experiments that exploit quantum correlations as a resource for quantum technology.
