The progress in parallel of high-speed electronics and low temperature technologies has revolutionized the study of quantum matter. Many of the gedanken experiments of the fathers of quantum mechanics are now realized routinely, as well as many new ones that the founders could hardly have dreamed of.  The possibility of quantum-based encryption, communication and computing is getting concrete and some real implementations are already available. This so-called second quantum revolution which is mostly yet to come will be the fruit of a close collaboration between theory (theoretical physics, but also applied mathematics) and experiment.

Our aim is to address some of the central theoretical open questions in the field. The program will be centered around three main topics:
(i) Quantum trajectories and Quantum control,
(ii) Measurement induced phase transitions and finally,
(iii) Quantum information and computation.

The goal of this program is to gather researchers from the above areas, from the theoretical, experimental and mathematical sides, to present a panorama of the current research in their domain and to explore the connections. One of the main aims would thus be to bring together people from these closely related areas and initiate collaborations.

Eligibility Criteria: Ph.D. students, postdoctoral fellows, and faculty members who are working in the related field.

Accommodation will be provided for outstation participants at our on campus guest house.

ICTS is committed to building an environment that is inclusive, non discriminatory and welcoming of diverse individuals. We especially encourage the participation of women and other under-represented groups
