The School (4-9 September 2017) covers a broad selection of fundamental topics in quantum science and quantum technology, treated at an advanced level. The Workshop (11-15 September 2017) aims at a comprehensive overview on research in quantum science and technology, including recent results, current trends, and future perspectives.

The purpose of the School is to provide an up-to-date, state of the art knowledge on some of the most important aspects of fundamtental quantum physics, quantum information, and quantum technologies, covering both theoretical and experimental aspects. The targeted audience includes advanced undergraduate and PhD students, as well as post-doctoral fellows and junior researchers. Special attention will be devoted to the training of scientists from emerging countries in line with the fundamental mission of the ICTP. The Workshop brings together a mix of established experts and emerging young researchers to give an in-depth overview on some of the most significant recent research results and on current, cutting-edge research trends in quantum information and quantum technologies. The targeted audience matches that of the School.

Topics:
• Fundamental Theory: Entanglement, Coherence, Correlations
• Quantum Technologies: Quantum Information, Computation, Sensing, Estimation, Metrology
• Quantum Simulations
• Quantum Thermodynamics
• Quantum Information and Condensed Matter Physics
• Open Quantum Systems
• Algorithms and Optimization
• Ultracold Atoms
• Trapped Ions
• Circuit QED
• Photonics and Photonic Networks
• Spintronics
