Registration deadline: 
2014-03-16 (All day)
Seefeld, Austria

This workshop will be the successor of the 1st Seefeld Workshop on Quantum Information Theory, which was held in 2012. The aim of this series of workshops is to bring together researchers working on quantum information theory. A range of topics will be covered, such as entanglement theory, Bell inequalities, non-locality, information theory, quantum measurements and tomography, quantum channels, as well as some selected topics in quantum computation. The schedule of the workshop is such that there will be enough time for many informal discussions. A number of prominent speakers have confirmed their participation and we anticipate an interesting and stimulating meeting.
