Europe/Stockholm timezone
The next Symposium on Topological Quantum Computation will be held at NORDITA, Stockholm, on June 4-5th, 2011.

The idea is to have a small relaxed two day workshop, that in the spirit of the previous events allows plenty of time for informal discussions between the talks. The focus of the symposium will be the interplay of topological order and quantum information theory. The topics will range from implementations of topological quantum computation to employing quantum information techniques in understanding topologically ordered condensed matter systems.

The list of speakers:

  • B. Andrei Bernevig (Princeton University)
  • Felix von Oppen (Freie Universität Berlin)
  • James Wootton (University of Leeds)
  • Cyril Stark (ETH Zürich)
  • Janik Kailasvuori (MPI Dresden)
  • Shanna Haaker (University of Amsterdam)
  • Michael Kamfor / Marc Daniel Schulz (University of Dortmund)
  • Enrique Rico Ortega (University of Innsbruck)
  • Ivan Rodriguez (NUI Maynooth)
  • Sofyan Iblisdir (University of Barcelona)

Internet access

Nordita does not have an own wireless network. Internet access is provided through the campus network, which, however, requires pre-registration from guests. Should you want to use it, please provide us with your date of birth before Wednesday 1st of June. Alternatively you may also use the eduroam network if you have access to it through your home institution.

Poster session

There were quite a few more contributions than we had slots for talks. Thus we are organizing a poster session on Saturday where further works can be presented. If you are interested in bringing a poster, please let us know so that we can arrange for sufficient amount of stands.

There are no registration fees. To register, simply e-mail Ville Lahtinen (villel@kth.se) that you would like to participate.


The block booking has expired. You are still welcome to participate the symposium, but you will be responsible for your own accommodation. We would recommend still acting soon as finding suitable accommodation can be problematic in Stockholm. Some conveniently located hotels can be found here.
