This summer school is aimed to gather students and researchers working or having interests in the field of quantum information physics to provide lectures by active researchers from basics to advanced topics. The typical topics of the school are decoherence, entanglement, and quantum entropy. It is followed by Workshop on Matrix Product State Formulation and Density Matrix Renormalization Group Simulations (MPS&DMRG) (12-13 August, same venue). Lectures of the summer school are given on the following major topics of the field.

   Black Holes, Qubits and OctonionsProf. Michael Duff (Imperial College, UK)

   Weak Value with DecoherenceProf. Akio Hosoya (Titech, Japan)

   Matrix Product Representations of States  Prof. Vahid Karimipour (Sharif Univ. Tech., Iran)

   Topological Quantum ComputationProf. Miguel Angel Martin-Delgado (Univ. Complutense Madrid, Spain)

Contibutions to slots of short talks, and posters, presenting theories, experiments, and computer simulations are welcome.
Topics to be covered include, but not limited to,
  • Quantum Coherence/Decoherence
  • Decoherence Control
  • Error Models
  • Error Corrections
  • Entanglement
  • Nonclassicality
  • Information Theories
  • Quantum Channel
  • Entropy Measures
  • Thermodynamical Point of View
