Open Quantum Systems and Quantum Information Theory

Toulouse, 16-18 November 2011

The aim of this workshop is to bring together mathematicians and physicists working on open quantum systems and quantum information theory and to develop interactions between the two communities. Two introductory lectures will be given, presenting the results, tools and major open problems in the two fields. The remaining time will be devoted to more conventional talks presenting state-of-the-art research results interesting for both communities.

The workshop will take place at the Institut de Mathématiques of Toulouse (1st floor Building 1R3). The workshop starts Wednesday 16th November 9 a.m and finishes Friday 18th November 5 p.m.
