Scope of the Program

The International School and Conference on Quantum Information will be held at Institute of Physics (IOP), Bhubaneswar during Feb 9-18, 2016. There will be a five-day school from February 9-13, 2016. After a one-day break, there will be conference from February 15-18, 2016. The school will be for those who are new to the field of quantum information. The conference will expose students to the the frontier area topics. One of the major goals is to bring together quantum physicists, computer scientists and mathematicians to discuss the current status of the field. It is hoped that all the participants and invited speakers will raise many open questions and fundamental issues which are yet to be understood. We will give emphasis on reviewing the major challenges in the field.

In this programme, we plan to cover various quantum algorithms, quantum communication and quantum cryptography, quantum entanglement and non locality, various quantum information processing protocols, quantum channels and operations. We will also take up topics from general quantum theory and fundamental questions related to quantum theory.
