V Quantum Information School and Workshop – Paraty 2015

As you can see here, there will be a School and Workshop about Quantum Information to be hosted in Paratay, Brasil (if you aren’t sure about wanting to attend, just do a quick google image search on Paratay Prasil, that will do the trick).

Deadline for applications to the V Paraty Quantum Information School and Workshop are getting closer (sorry for the short notice but I also very recently just found out). I just submitted my application for the School and the Workshop, and I hope to see you all there (wink wink nudge nudge selection committee!). If everything goes according to plan I ought to present a poster on our latest work.

The School will take place between the 4th and the 8th of August, and the Workshop between the 11th and the 15th. If you are a student, I hear the courses are very good, this year they will be:

Classical simulation of quantum computations
Richard Jozsa, University of Cambridge, UK

Quantum information processing with photons
Philip Walther, Vienna University, Austria

Recent advances in continuous-variable quantum information: on the (long?) road toward a massively scalable, fault-tolerant universal quantum computer
Olivier Pfister, University of Virginia, USA

Quantum thermodynamics
Fernando G.S.L. Brandão, Microsoft Research, USA and University College London, UK

Ingredients for universal quantum computation
Ernesto F. Galvão, Universidade Federal Fluminense, Brazil

Mechanical Quantum Systems
Matthew LaHaye, Syracuse University, USA

Below is the poster for this edition!
