Obergurgl 2017

Winter school on Complex Networks:


From Classical to Quantum:


Theory and Experimental Implementation

Universitätszentrum Obergurgl, 3.-7. April 2017

 Jörg Schmiedmayer (Vienna Center for Quantum Science and Technology, Atominstitut, TU-Wien)

Co-chairs: Bill Munro (NII, Tokyo) and Andrew Briggs (Oxford)

 We intend to bring together Quantum Physics and Classical Networks both in theoretical models and in emerging experimental settings. The goal of this interdisciplinary school is to foster interaction between these communities. The school is aimed at PhD students and Postdocs who work in classical networks, quantum physics, quantum communication and quantum information; theory and experiment. Details can be found at: quantum-networks.org/obergurgl2017.

 Obergurgl is located in the Ötztal in Tyrol (the 3300 year old mummy “Oetzi the Iceman” was named after the valley and was found in a glacier close to that place). It is a prominent skiing resort in winter and a nice and relaxing alpine resort in summer. The conference will be held at the University Centre Obergurgl, which is associated with the University of Innsbruck.

Program: will follow

The school is supported by the John Templeton Foundation grant The Nature of Quantum Networks, the Austrian Science Fund FWF via the SFB-FOQUS and the PhD school CoQuS and the ERC QuantumRelax.
