International Workshop on Quantum Simulation: Gauge Fields, Holography, and Topology, 10-12 July 2019, in Bilbao, Spain
email.- quant [dot] sim [dot] ght [at] gmail [dot] com
During the last years, a synergy among different fields in physics has grown up to understand and characterize, to control and manipulate quantum many-body systems that appear in high-energy physics and condensed matter models. Thanks to this collaborative effort, new tools and concepts from quantum information and quantum optics complement more traditional ones from particle and statistical physics.
The purpose of this workshop is to bring together in a three days meeting, experts and leaders in the field to present and discuss the most recent results and outlook the most promising directions of this multidisciplinary challenge.
