We are announcing an open event, the Workshop on “Incompatible Quantum Measurements”. It is an event gathering scientists from the topic of quantum measurements and quantum foundations, to take place at the Technical University in Munich, 9-12 September 2013.
The Opening day on “Quantum Measurement Theory” (9 September 2013, Hörsaal 2, http://go.tum.de/060805) will be devoted more generally to the theory of quantum measurements and will feature three talks by eminent researchers in the field of quantum foundations and measurement theory:
* Rob Spekkens (Perimeter Institute, Canada)
* Teiko Heinosaari (University of Turku, Finland)
* Paul Busch (University of York, UK)
The specific topics on Incompatible quantum measurements, which have seen a surge of research interest in recent years, will be the topic of the of the more specialized Workshop on the following days (10.-12.9., room MA 03.10.011, http://go.tum.de/225003). The Workshop will address, but is not strictly limit to, the following topics:
* Coexistence and its relation to fundamental effects of quantum mechanics such as entanglement, uncertainty relations and/or no-cloning theorem and more generally to the chain of impossible devices,
* Coexistence and joint measurability provide a good framework that is applicable and related to quantum communication protocols and especially investigations of communication security,
* How do the operational differences between the different incompatibility notions show up in real-world scenarios?
We welcome any researchers interested to participate in the workshop. If you would like to attend, please send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org (including dates of attendance, and title and abstract of talk if desired). Unfortunately, we can provide financial support only for invited speakers.
Please forward this invitation to anyone who might be interested. Sorry for multiple receivings.
