2012-07-01 - 2012-07-06
Seefeld in Tirol, Austria

Dear colleagues,

we would like to draw your attention to the upcoming

Seefeld Quantum Information Workshop (1-6 July 2012),

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

The aim of this workshop 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.
