Entanglement is a key feature of quantum mechanics that, since its introduction, has been posing fundamental questions about our understanding of nature.  In the last decade it became clear that entanglement also gives a finer understanding of quantum statistical systems both in and out of equilibrium for pure and disordered systems.  These studies have allowed the developing of new numerical algorithms to tackle quantum systems, also showing that the growing of enganglement is the main limitation to simulate the non equilibrium dynamics of quantum systems on a classical computer.  Maybe surprisingly, the slowest growth of entanglement in a non-equilibrium disordered system permits an easier numerical simulations that sheds some lights also on phenomena like many-body localization.

The main goal of this conference is to bring together experts working in different areas of quantum physics (statistical physics, quantum information, quantum field theory, many-body localization, tensor networks, etc.) with common interest in entanglement and non-equilibrium physics.

This Conference is a satellite of the international Conference STATPHYS26, taking place in Lyon, France, from 18 - 22 July 2016:   

The Conference is also partially overlapping with the Conference on Long-Range Interacting Many-Body Systems: from Atomic to Astrophysical Scales  to be held at the ICTP from 25 to 29 July 2016 (see: ).
