Mathematical Institute, University of Oxford
Organizers: Samson Abramsky (Oxford), Bob Coecke (Oxford), Michael Collins (Oxford), Christopher Douglas (Oxford), Yakov Kremnitzer (Oxford), Ulrike Tillmann (Oxford), Jamie Vicary (Oxford)
This inaugural research workshop of the Centre for Quantum Mathematics and Computation will seek to take stock of contemporary foundational ideas in mathematics, computer science and physics. Alongside invited talks by world experts, informal events will be held, such as problemsessions and research planning activities. Particular attention will be devoted to the organizing role played by logical structures, and how this illuminates our understanding of such diverse areas asquantum field theory, geometry, semantics of computation, and quantum information.
Speakers: Samson Abramsky (Oxford), Steve Awodey (Carnegie Mellon), John Baez (UC Riverside), Alexander Beilinson (Chicago), Bob Coecke (Oxford), Lucien Hardy (Perimeter), Martin Hyland (Cambridge),Yakov Kreminitzer (Oxford), Dana Scott (Carnegie Mellon), Steve Simon (Oxford), Vladimir Voevodsky (IAS), Anton Zeilinger (Vienna)
This is one of four concurrent workshops being held in association with the 2013 Clay Research Conference.
