Scope of the School
The objective of
this school is to give a strong background on quantum and nano
computing to interested students, scientists and young researches.
The participants are not assumed to have any prior knowledge on
the field and could come from computer science, electrical,
electronics and mechanical engineering, physics or mathematics.
Scientists already familiar with the subject are also welcome, for
they will learn something from internationally renowned
researchers in the field.
The school involves intense training in the foundations,
ramifications, and current frontiers of quantum information
science and its physical implementation at the nanoscale. It will
cover the entire range of this newly emerged and truly
interdisciplinary field, from mathematics over theoretical and
experimental physics to computer science. A series of lectures and
seminars will cover basic concepts to challenging problems of
cutting edge research, along a steep learning curve.
Special Forum on ‘Quantum
Theory and Science of Consciousness’
A new addition from QANSAS 2012 is the special forum on Quantum
Theory and Science of Consciousness as a pre-school event on
November 28, 2012 with oral presentations and poster session. Many
scientists are currently studying what happens in the brain and
how the mind relates to the outside world, but quantifying what
gives us consciousness is proving to be a challenging task.
