The Annual IMSc School on Quantum Information will focus on the latest advancements in diverse areas of quantum information science. Each year the School will feature a set of courses of lectures by experts on currently unfolding areas of interest, accompanied by tutorial and discussion sessions.
This Inaugural Edition of the School will comprise the following courses:
Andreas Winter (Barcelona) Problems in Quantum Shannon Theory
Pranab Sen (TIFR) Problems in Quantum Shannon Theory
Graeme Smith (IBM) Optical Quantum Communication
Eric Chitambar (SIU) Entanglement and LOCC processing
Fernando Brandao (UCL) One-shot Information Theory and Applications to Condensed Matter Theory
The lectures will take place in the morning. Afternoon sessions will be devoted to tutorials, problem-solving and discussions.
The inaugural edition of the School is aimed at advanced graduate students and researchers in quantum information theory. The courses will be self-contained, but move on quickly to problems of current research in the field. It is anticipated that the tutorial and discussion sessions would constitute an exciting component of the School, facilitating closer interaction.
