New to cIRcle: 10th Canadian Summer School on QI

The 10th Canadian Summer School on Quantum Information on Quantum Algorithms, Computational Models, and Foundations of Quantum Mechanics was held at the University of British Columbia, Vancouver, July 17-30, 2010. (see

Quantum Information Science is a rapidly developing interdisciplinary field of information science and quantum mechanics. The field explores questions of fundamental importance to information science and quantum mechanics. The developments in this field have far reaching consequences for areas outside the field. This summer school, following the tradition of previous summer schools, aims to train young researchers in Physics, Computer Science, and Mathematics, and provide them with an entry point into this exciting field.

This summer school emphasized quantum algorithms and models of quantum computation, with particular attention to mathematical methods. The topics covered are quantum algorithms, quantum error correction, adiabatic quantum computation, topological quantum computation, measurement based quantum computation, classical simulation of quantum systems. This summer school also featured advanced topics such as foundations of quantum mechanics and graph theory in quantum information.
