A five-day workshop—August 1 through August 5—at the University of Maryland, presented by the Joint Center for Quantum Information and Computer Science.

WHAT: A small, five-day workshop, with a focus on QMA(2) and the tools, techniques and open questions related to this complexity class. In particular, we think this class provides an interesting lens through which to examine the power of entanglement. We will focus not only on upper and lower bounds but also on related topics (quantum de Finetti theorems, semidefinite programming hierarchies, etc.) We will have a small number of talks by world experts in the field, with plenty of free time to encourage collaboration.


WHEN: August 1 through August 5, 2016


WHERE: Joint Center for Quantum Information and Computer Science (QuICS)
                University of Maryland, College Park
