Quantum Science: Implementations

2014, Jun 29 -- Jul 19

Organizers:
D. Chang (ICFO, Barcelona)
J. J. García-Ripoll (IFF-CSIC, Madrid)
L. Jiang (Yale U., USA)
O. Romero-Isart (IQOQI, Innsbruck)

This workshop is intended to discuss recent progress and challenges in the physical implementation of quantum science (e.g. quantum information and computation, simulation, cryptography, metrology, foundations, etc.). Therefore, the workshop aims at a balanced mixture between theorists and experimentalists from a variety of fields: optical lattices, trapped ions, atomic ensembles, cavity QED, NV-centers, quantum dots, quantum circuits, quantum nanomechanical resonators, (nano)photonics, etc.

This workshop is organized in order to complement the successful biannual Benasque Quantum Information workshop organized by Ignacio Cirac and Artur Ekert by focusing on the implementations of quantum science. Our workshop will use their format, which is similar to the Aspen and KITP meetings, where the number of official talks will be very limited so that participants will be able to interact at will. Profiting from the optimal scientific installations of the recently built Centro de Ciencias de Benasque Pedro Pascual (CCBPP), participants will be encouraged to use the offices, blackboards, and seminar rooms to self-organize discussions, lectures, talks, etc. Benasque, with its beautiful valley, sports facilities, and local exquisite restaurants, offers an ideal atmosphere to trigger inspiring discussions and boost the social relations among scientists.

While the schedule of the workshop is quite informal, theorists (experimentalists) are strongly encouraged to stay three weeks (at least one week) in order to take full advantage of the scientific atmosphere. Bus transportation for participants will be organized by the CCBPP on select dates between Barcelona (including airport) and Benasque. The trip takes approximately 6 hours. Alternatively the trip by car takes approximately 3,5 hours. The CCBPP center can also be reached with public transportation, using buses that depart from Zaragoza's (4 hours) and Barcelona's (6 hours) high speed train stations. The CCBPP will assist in securing a number of affordable accommodation options including hotels and short-term apartment rentals. The registration fee (see below for details) covers the use of the CCBPP (offices, computers room, etc), the bus transportation, a coffee break every day, and a wine and cheese reception once per week.
