Quantum Information meets Statistical Mechanics
22.09.2012 - 25.09.2012
Quantum Information meets Statistical Mechanics (QISM) is a new conference
series that focuses on the interplay of quantum information and
mechanics. The goal of the conference is to bring together scholars from
quantum information theory and statistical mechanics to explore emerging
connections between these fields and hopefully develop some fruitful
collaborations. The first meeting of this series was held at El Escorial,
Spain, in 2011.
In this second conference, a broad selection of topics will be covered
ranging from "Quantum simulation and lattice gauge theories", "Quantum
information and the foundations of statistical mechanics", "Statistical
physics of complex systems", and "Thermodynamics and gravity". The program
will include a number of introductory and overview talks, with the aim of
bridging the gap between the two fields.
