This event will bring together researchers working on mathematical foundations of quantum physics, quantum computing and information, 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 physical behaviour in general.

Physicists have always thought quantum computing is hard because quantum states are incredibly fragile. But could noise and messiness actually help things along?

PhD position at the National University of Ireland, Galway: Mathematical analysis of the properties of Quantum Random Walks.

The Summer School will take place at El Escorial, Spain (http://www.euroforum.es/), a nice and historic city about 50 km to the north of Madrid. See further information below and in the website.

The whole activity will focus primarily on the following topics:

* One-Way Quantum Computation and Statistical Mechanics
* Topological Codes and Statistical Models
* Random Statistical Mechanical Systems and Lattice Gauge Theories
* Quantum Information and Models of Discrete Quantum Gravity

Hybrid architectures for quantum information processing
Laboratoire Kastler Brossel, Paris

Applications are invited for a postdoctoral position in experimental quantum optics and quantum information at Laboratoire Kastler Brossel (LKB), in Paris (France). LKB is jointly run by Université P. et M. Curie, Ecole Normale Supérieure and CNRS.
