This WORKSHOP is part of a two-week event consisting of
Week 2: Workshop on Quantum Information Theory and Thermodynamics at the Nanoscale (2 - 6 March 2020). UPDATE: because of the latest Covid-19 developments and their impact on flights with subsequent last minute cancellations, we are forced to shorten the Workshop, and end on Thursday 5 March 2020
The topics of these activities (School, 24 - 28 February, and Workshop, 2 - 6 March) are at the forefront of current research in the field of quantum technologies, a fast growing research area involving questions of both fundamental and practical relevance.
What are role and value of coherence and entanglement in solid state devices in quantum information, and in the working and efficiency of mesoscopic quantum engines?
What are the mechanisms behind thermalization of closed quantum systems and what is the role of non-Markovianity in the physics of quantum information?
These and other issues will be covered during the School and subsequent Workshop addressed to graduate students and junior researchers, providing them with the opportunity of a good training and the possibility to meet some leading experts in the field.
Grants: A limited number of grants are available to support the attendance of selected participants, with priority given to participants from developing countries. There is no registration fee.
