Dear colleagues,

we would like to draw your attention to the upcoming

*** 3rd Seefeld Quantum Information Workshop (26.6 - 1.7.2016) ***

to be held in the beautiful village of Seefeld in Tirol, Austria.

This workshop will be the successor of the 1st and 2nd Seefeld Workshops on Quantum Information Theory, which were held in 2012 and 2014 respectively. The main focus of this series of workshops is on quantum information topics such as entanglement theory, non-locality, quantum measurements and tomography, quantum metrology, entanglement in condensed matter systems, etc., 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.

The workshop homepage is: http://www.uibk.ac.at/th-physik/qi-seefeld2016/
