This is an introductory- to mid-level postgraduate school, focusing on theoretical and experimental aspects of quantum information and quantum computation. It is targeted at MSc. and PhD students wishing to quickly learn the basics of these rapidly developing fields from some of the world's leading experts.
Each course will consist of 4:30hrs of lectures in English. There will also be a discussion session between students and lecturers.

Dates: 
Sunday, September 4, 2011

The conference program will include invited talks, contributed talks and poster presentations covering a broad range of topics: quantum information and quantum communication, physical realizations of quantum systems for information technology such as photons, single atoms, ions, molecules, nuclear and electron spins, superconducting circuits, micro- and nano-mechanics, hybrid quantum systems, topical subjects, including cavity QED, optical lattices, quantum memories, foundations of quantum information, and many-body systems.

Belle Dumé at NanotechWeb writes: ''A new way to make complete and programmable logic circuits that combine both memory and logical processing in a single structure has been unveiled by physicists in Germany. Such structures could lead to smaller, faster and more energy-efficient integrated circuits and their development has been one of the main goals in spintronics – a relatively new technology that exploits the spin of an electron as well as its charge.

The physics of strong light-matter coupling has been addressed in different scientific communities in the last 3 decades. Since the early eighties, several as well as single atoms have been coupled to optical and microwave cavities, leading to pioneering demonstrations of cavity quantum electrodynamics, textbook Gedanken experiments, and building blocks for quantum information processing.

There are postdoc and PhD positions available in Mathematical Physics/Quantum Information Theory in the Department of Mathematics at the Technical University in Munich (Germany). Applicants should be
• mathematicians, theoretical physicists or computer scientists,
• interested in mathematical physics, theoretical computer science, quantum information theory and/or other fields of quantum theory and its foundations,
• willing to contribute to undergraduate math education.
