The Summer School will be held at Kinki University, Higashi-Osaka, Japan, 8 - 10 of September, 2011.


This is the 2011 version of our annual Summer School on Quantum Information and Computation that aims at bringing students and researchers to recent interdisciplinary developements in Quantum Computation and Information. A great deal of research work has shown that the field of Quantum Computation and Information is deeply intertwined with other disciplines, not only in Physics but also in Chemistry, Biology, Engineering, etc.. Gate operation error and noise from environment are two of the most serious obstacles against physical realization of a working quantum computer. It is the purpose of our summer school this year to introduce two cutting adge solutions to these problems.


The Summer School has two types of lectures. The first are invited, pedagogical lectures taught by invited lecturers on new developments in Qauntum Computation and Information. The second consists of short, contributed talks presented by postdocs and students on their recent work.


Information about our summer schools of previous years can be found here: 2007, 2009, and 2010.


Topic Lecturer
Systematic errors: precise control in an imprecise world Prof Jonathan Jones
State-of-the-art quantum error correction: the Kitaev surface code Dr. Austin Fowler




Contributed short talks and posters, which present theories, experiments, and computer simulations are welcome. Priorities would be given to those who need to give talks to obtain financial assistance to their travel from their own home universities or institutes. Topics to be covered (but not limited to) include

  • Topological Quantum Computation
  • Relativistic Quantum Information
  • Quantum Computation/Information meets High Energy Physics and Quantum Gravity
  • Error Corrections
  • Entanglement
  • Nonclassicality
  • Information Theories
  • Quantum Channel
  • Entropy Measures
  • Thermodynamical Point of View

Please use the Submission Page to submit your abstract. Note that, due to the limited number of slots avaiable for contributed talks, your abstract might not be accepted after our comprehensive review. An Email notice will be sent to you upon the acceptance of your abstract. Nevertheless, there will be no limit to the number of posters.
