Dear Students, Researchers and Professors,

Greetings from the Institute of Advanced Studies (IAS) at Nanyang
Technological University (NTU), Singapore!

We would like to cordially invite you to the School on* Modern Topics in
Quantum Information Processing* jointly organised by the Institute of
Advanced Studies (IAS) and the Abdus Salam International Centre for
Theoretical Physics (ICTP). It will be held from 18 to 29 January 2016 at
the Nanyang Executive Centre, NTU.

Many world-renowned scientists will be at the School, including *Prof
Gerard 't Hooft (**Nobel Prize in Physics 1999)*, *Prof Sir Anthony J.
Leggett (Nobel Prize in Physics 2003)*, *Prof Serge Haroche (Nobel Prize in
Physics 2012)* and many more.


The School aims to introduce modern concepts and methods Quantum
Information Processing, which provides broad, solid foundations in modern
topics of quantum information science. Subjects covered during the two
weeks of the School include:

   - Entanglement, tensor networks, matrix product states
   - Topological quantum computation
   - Coding and error correction
   - Quantum algorithms
   - Physical implementations of quantum computation and information
   - Majorana physics

*Registration (by 10th October, 2015)*

The school is intended predominantly for young scientists (students and
researchers). *There are no fees involved to attend the school.* Limited
travel support funds are available for participants from Asia. For
registration, please visit: http://indico.ictp.it/event/7574/

For more information, please visit:

For enquiries, please email to the School secretariat at: smr2702 at ictp.it

We would deeply appreciate it if you could circulate this announcement to
your friends, colleagues and students who might be interested to attend the

Looking forward to welcoming you to the School!

Warmest regards,

Institute of Advanced Studies
