Within the last decade progress in quantum information theory (QIT) has revolutionized our understanding and computational capacity of fundamental concepts in physics and science in general. Tools and techniques from QIT are bringing new perspectives into fields such as quantum field theory and cosmology, and are inspiring new questions and research directions. Many of these ideas have the potential to fundamentally shift our thinking about complex quantum systems to a perspective in which information and information-theoretic concepts play a primary and essential role. Our proposed workshop will highlight the recent developments in these areas.
The goal of this workshop is twofold:
- Prepare interested postgraduate students with pedagogic lectures for research.
- Bringing the south African research community together to generate new collaborations.
- Due to limited space, the number of in-person participants will be capped at 30.
- The presentations will be by invitation only.
