One week graduate school featuring lectures by leading researchers in the fields of Quantum Information and Quantum Gravity. Held in the Goutelas castle in the south of France, from Sunday 16 to Sunday 23 of April 2023.
Application now closed.
No attendance fee. Board and accommodation are included.
The overarching theme of the research school is the understanding of spacetime and gravity through the lens of quantum information. Quantum theory and general relativity have modified our notions of locality and objectivity on the one hand, and space and time on the other. Understanding the consequences of this shift requires bringing together a diverse range of disciplines from physics (general relativity, quantum information, high energy theory, quantum gravity, quantum foundations), mathematics (differential geometry, functional analysis), computer science (information theory, quantum computing) as well as philosophy and history of science.
This will not be a typical research school packed with lectures. While there will be lectures in the morning, there will be plenty of time during the afternoon and evening to organise individual events, see preliminary schedule. Much time and freedom will be given to students to stimulate new ideas and foster collaboration. You can organise your own reading group, topical seminar series or discussion sessions. We also encourage non-science creative sessions, such as sports, playing musical instruments or poetry slam.
