Quantum resources: from mathematical foundations to operational characterisation

Singapore, 30 November – 3 December 2020

Various properties of quantum systems are starting to find use in the development of practical quantum technologies, elevating phenomena such as entanglement and coherence from mathematical curiosities to physical resources. The framework of quantum resource theories aims to understand these features in a unified fashion and establish methods to characterise them effectively.

The workshop Quantum resources: from mathematical foundations to operational characterisation is concerned with the theoretical investigation of quantum resources, and in particular on bridging the gap between the abstract mathematical description of resource theories and the protocols for their practical exploitation.

The workshop will consist of invited talks by experts in various aspects of quantum resource theories as well as contributed talks, poster sessions, and extended discussion sessions.

  COVID-19 notice

Due to the rapidly escalating novel coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic and the international travel restrictions imposed by Singapore and many other countries, the workshop has been postponed to 30 November - 3 December 2020. Please refer to the updated dates and deadlines below.
