Organizer: DWIH New Delhi, FZ Jülich, IIT Madras

Venue: IIT Madras, Chennai

Quantum information science and technologies have taken giant strides over the last decade. For the first time since the advent of quantum theory, it is now possible to build and precisely control very complex, highly entangled quantum states of many particles, and the idea of quantum computing seems well on its way to becoming a physically realisable prospect. In this context,  leading researchers in this field from India and Germany will come together for a two-day workshop. The aim would be to identify areas of common interest across the disciplines of quantum computation, quantum information theory and quantum cryptography and discuss possible future roadmaps.

The meeting will have individual sessions on specific topics including, but not limited to:

(1) Quantum Computing Architectures

(Spin Qubits/Superconducting Qubits/NMR and NV-Centers)

(2) Aspects of Quantum Entanglement

(Entanglement growth in physical systems; Measures and Witnesses)

(3) Quantum Cryptography and Communications

(Quantum Key Distribution)

(4) Quantum Error Correction (Topological Codes and noise-adapted QEC)

The workshop will also have panel discussions on the broader goals and research directions to be pursued.
