|Algorithms in Quantum Information processing|
The last few years have seen progress and great interest in quantum computing and its attendant disciplines. Quite a bit of that work has focussed on the physics underlying quantum computing. But there is also a need to disseminate the results coming out of Computer Science and to connect the notion of quantum computing with the research into computing in general. This was the approach taken at the Algorithms in Quantum Information Processing workshop (AQIP '98) sponsored by BRICS and that took place last January at the University of Aarhus, Denmark.
Considering the enormous success of that first workshop, we would like to announce the second Algorithms in Quantum Information Processing workshop (AQIP '99). This will take place between January 18th and January 22nd, 1999, in Chicago, Illinois, USA. It will be sponsored by the School of Computer Science, Telecommunications, and Information Systems (CTI) at DePaul University.
Researchers in the area are invited to the workshop. which will have a program of a variety of talks, along with social events and chances to meet informally with other people.
We will attempt to cover the entire field of quantum information processing, including quantum computing, quantum cryptography, quantum information theory, and related subjects from computer science. The fact that we will try to take a computer science point of view does (of course) not exclude subjects that relate to physics, but it does exclude subjects such as specific physical realizations of quantum cryptography and quantum computers.
Here is the tentative list of speakers and subject of their respective talks
