Bristol academics have recently organised a workshop at the prestigious Newton Institute, hosting internationally renowned researchers in the area of quantum computing and quantum information. The workshop took place between the 2nd and 6th of September and featured talks from 20 experts on a wide variety of topics.
In recent years the subject of quantum information theory has undergone explosive growth, and progress has been made on many of the most long-standing open problems in the field. Such progress has frequently relied on increasingly sophisticated and diverse tools from computer science and mathematics. The goal of the workshop was to widely disseminate knowledge of these tools and the underlying mathematics involved, and to discuss exciting new directions for the field.
The workshop is part of an ongoing three-month-long programme on quantum information at the Newton Institute, in which Bristol academics are also taking a leading organisational role.
