Quantum Information in Quantum Gravity III

August 14 to 18, 2017 at UBC, Vancouver, Canada

UBC Main Mall Aerial


The workshop is aimed at facilitating discussion on applying information theoretic concepts to tackle quantum gravity conundrums. In recent years we have seen an increasing interplay between the quantum information and the string/quantum gravity communities and we aim to facilitate further interaction in this front. We plan to have a a few talks per day with lots of time for discussions.
