Quantum Information and Quantum Entanglement

University of Illinois: July 15-19

The conference will be in room: 276 Loomis Laboratory of Physics

We will be holding a workshop on quantum information and entanglement with a strong thematic focus on Tensor Networks. This conference will span a wide array of practitioner ranging from those thinking about holography to implementation of PEPS to tensor decompositions.

The format of this conference is somewhat unusual: All talks will be chalkboard talks with the expectation that there will be a significant amount of discussion/interruption involved during the talks.
