The thematic semester will be composed of several activities:
  1. Inaugural Colloquium (13/03/2019).
  2. School I (11-15/03/2019).
  3. Workshop I (18-22/03/2019).
  4. School II (06-10/05/2019).
  5. Workshop II (13-17/05/2019).
  6. International Conference (17/06-21/06/2019).
  7. Visitor Program and Running Seminar.

School II (06-10/05/2019):

In this school we will high-light several important interactions between operator algebras and the theory of quantum information. The school will be divided again into three parts and interactions between these parts will be remarked during the course.

  1. Speaker: Magdalena Musat, U. Copenhagen, Denmark
    Title: Infinite dimensional phenomena in the analysis of quantum information theory.
    Abstract: To be announced.

  2. Speaker: Ion Nechita, U. Toulouse, France
    Title: Applications of random matrices to quantum information theory.
    Abstract: To be announced.

  3. Speaker: Vern Paulsen, U. Waterloo, Canada
    Title: Operator algebras and nonlocal games.
    Abstract: To be announced.

Workshop II (13-17/05/2019):

As with the first school and workshop, this second workshop is to be thought as a follow-up to the second school. Nevertheless, some of the talks held here will belong to the operator algebra half of the semester. Confirmed talks are again still to be announced.

There will be a chance to present a talk in the workshop. However, in order to favour interaction among the participants, the number of talks will be limited.
