Welcome to the First Announcement of the 2015 edition of this biennial event 


As in previous editions, the event will be held in the idyllic setting of Paraty, on Rio de Janeiro's Costa Verde. 


This is an official event of the Brazilian National Science and Technology Institute for Quantum Information, the main Brazilian network of researchers in the field.


Further details to be announced.

Quantum Information School

04 - 08 Aug 2015

This is an introductory- to mid-level postgraduate school, focusing on theoretical and experimental aspects of quantum information and quantum computation. It is targeted at MSc. and PhD students wishing to quickly learn the basics of these rapidly developing fields from some of the world's leading experts. Each course will consist of three 1.5hr lectures in English.

Classical simulation of quantum computations
Richard Jozsa, University of Cambridge, UK.
Quantum information processing with photons
Philip Walther, Vienna University, Austria
Recent advances in continuous-variable quantum information: on the (long?) road toward a massively scalable, fault-tolerant universal quantum computer
Olivier Pfister, University of Virginia, USA
Quantum thermodynamics
Fernando G.S.L. Brandão, University College London, UK
Ingredients for universal quantum computation
Ernesto F. Galvão, Universidade Federal Fluminense, Brasil
Mechanical Quantum Systems
Matthew LaHaye, Syracuse University, USA

Quantum Information Workshop

10 - 15 Aug 2015

The Workshop aims to convene some of the world's experts in quantum information to discuss the latest results in this and related fields. The main aim is to provide a relaxed setting, avoiding an excess of talks, in order to stimulate discussion and new ideas.
