Quantum Computing Materials Challenges
27 Aug 2018 - 29 Aug 2018 • Institute for Pure and Applied Mathematics (IPAM), United States
Abstract:
Materials that behave as quantum bits (qubits) will be the quantum chips that underlie a future quantum economy. Currently, a variety of materials have been proposed as qubit materials ranging from topological phases of matter to nitrogen-vacancy centers in diamond. Advancing the understanding and prediction of qubit materials is essential to the second quantum revolution centering on quantum computing. This three-day workshop will explore the mathematical modeling of materials for quantum computing by bringing together people from the materials modeling and simulation and quantum computing communities. The goal is to identify the grand challenges and propose possible solutions in the modeling and simulation of qubit materials and quantum devices for the engineering of a large-scale useful quantum computer.

The workshop "The Universe as a Quantum Lab" will bring together worldwide experts of Quantum Mechanics on one hand, and Cosmology on the other hand, in order to stimulate discussions around questions such as: "Were the beginnings of the Universe truly quantum and is it possible to prove it?" "How did the Universe transit from a quantum to a classical state?" "Can alternatives to the standard view about Quantum Mechanics be tested by cosmological observations?" "Do they shed different light on the physics of the early Universe and its transition towards a classical state?"

Advances in Quantum Simulation with Ultracold Atoms
29 Oct 2018 - 09 Nov 2018 • Natal, Brazil
Abstract:
Quantum simulation is an exceptionally vivid field of research embracing several areas of physics, ranging from atomic, molecular, and optical physics, to condensed-matter, nuclear, gravitational and high-energy physics, as well as quantum information science. The goal of quantum simulation is to address important, yet unsolved quantum Hamiltonians by “synthesizing” them in experimental quantum systems so as to directly measure the properties of these models, otherwise very hard to be handled by classical computations. This approach is well summarized by Feynman's own words: 'Nature isn’t classical, dammit, and if you want to make a simulation of nature, you’d better make it quantum mechanical, and by golly it’s a wonderful problem, because it doesn’t look so easy'. Ultracold atomic quantum gases, in particular, offer a unique setting for quantum simulation of interacting many-body systems. The high degree of controllability, the novel detection possibilities and the extreme physical parameter regimes that can be reached provide an exciting complementary set-up compared e.g. with natural condensed-matter systems, allowing the study of novel quantum states of matter that are very hard to achieve, or are completely inaccessible in Nature.

Quantum Information Science is a major frontier of modern science and technology, exploring physical situations that are classically impossible. An important technological application, already available today, is secure quantum key distribution realized by spatially separated entangled quantum states. This program will be centered around new fundamental physical questions that will emerge from successful current and future quantum technologies. The focus will be on effects and phenomena that appear already in low-dimensional quantum systems, and which are (or may soon be) experimentally realized.

Effective Theories of Quantum Phases of Matter
06 May 2019 - 31 May 2019 • Stockholm, Sweden
Abstract:
Physical systems look different when observed at different resolutions: what appears as a continuum liquid to the naked eye becomes a cluster of jiggling atoms when observed at the resolution of an electron microscope. Effective field theory provides a description of physics in terms of degrees of freedom appropriate to a given resolution. Over the last couple of decades, physicists have developed effective field theory tools which, to a large extent, unify fields as diverse as atomic and condensed-matter physics, particle and nuclear physics, and cosmology. The ensuing interaction between different branches of physics has never been as fruitful as it is now. Numerous physical phenomena, first predicted and studied in high-energy physics, have found their realization in novel materials. On the other hand, the richness of condensed-matter physics provides a lasting source of inspiration for new developments in high-energy physics and cosmology. Extremely useful in general, the effective field theory tools become indispensable for quantum phases of matter whose low-energy physics is driven by collective excitations, either due to the presence of spontaneous symmetry breaking or due to strong microscopic interactions. The aim of this program is to give a new impulse to a further development of this exciting interdisciplinary field. We bring together leading practitioners working on effective theories of quantum phases of matter across several branches of physics. Our goal is to map out important open problems with broad relevance and look for new directions towards their solution, to reinvigorate existing collaborations and foster new connections.

FQMT19 — Frontiers of Quantum and Mesoscopic Thermodynamics 2019
14 Jul 2019 - 20 Jul 2019 • Prague, Czech Republic
Abstract:
The main goal of the conference is to contribute to a better understanding of the behavior of quantum systems out of equilibrium. To reach this aim we also need to improve our knowledge of systems in equilibrium and steady state situations. The conference will thus address foundations of quantum physics, quantum many body physics, statistical physics, and thermodynamics relying on the theoretical and experimental methods of condensed matter physics and quantum optics. The systems considered will be mainly on the order of mesoscopic (nanoscale) size, and include those of both natural and artificial origin. Special attention will be given to non-equilibrium quantum systems, physics of quantum information and manifestation of quantum effects in biological systems. Subjects from astrophysics, gravitation or cosmology related to the above scope will also be included.

QEC19 — 5th International Conference on Quantum Error Detection
29 Jul 2019 - 02 Aug 2019 • London, United Kingdom
Abstract:
Quantum error correction of decoherence and faulty control operations forms the backbone of all of quantum information processing. Despite remarkable progress on this front since the discovery of quantum error correcting codes more than a decade ago, important open problems in both theory and applications to real physical systems remain. The Fifth International Conference on Quantum Error Correction will bring together a wide group of experts from academia and industry to discuss all aspects of decoherence control, quantum error correction and fault tolerance.

Topological Quantum Matter: From Low-Temperature Physics to Non-Equilibrium Dynamics
23 Aug 2019 • Stockholm, Sweden
Abstract:
Recent advances in the band theory of crystalline materials have singled out topology as a key ingredient in the modern classification of matter, with major impact on measurable electronic properties. Topological band theory has also grown into an emerging paradigm in many areas of physics, and is now used to characterize metamaterials, including photonic, atomic, acoustic, and elastic systems, in both the quantum and classical regimes. As our understanding of topology in physics widens, the incorporation of out-of-equilibrium phenomena is gaining in importance.
