Frontiers of Photonic Entanglement

2020, May 12 -- May 17

M. Malik (Heriot-Watt University, Edinburgh)
M. Huber (IQOQI, Vienna)

By bringing together leading experimentalists and theorists from around the world working on photonic quantum information, this workshop aims to start conversations that transcend the traditional lab/blackboard divide. In addition to providing a relaxing environment for discussing new ideas, the workshop will aspire to identify pressing problems and future directions for our field.

In keping with Benasque tradition, there are no formal talks planned. Participants will instead be encouraged to give/request short blackboard talks on relevant topics/recent results and have open-ended discussions about what we perceive as open problems. There will be a permanent poster-session to allow participants to discuss their results at any time during the workshop. Please bring a poster along if you’d like to share results that are more suitable to this format.
