The Wallenberg Initiative on Networks and Quantum Information (WINQ), supported by the Knut and Alice Wallenberg foundation (KAW), is located within the conducive research environment of Nordita. It is aimed at nurturing and bringing together expertise from both quantum information science and complex dynamical systems to address major open challenges in these fields. The set of three day workshops, strategically split into two halves, are aimed at addressing the major recent progresses in the respective fields, and discuss open challenges. The programme will include visionary talks, conventional seminars, short talks and posters.

The first workshop (8th - 10th of June) will emphasize quantum information science (QI). The major topics that will be covered include:

  • Design of novel quantum algorithms (inspired from machine learning and artificial intelligence, computationally hard problems)
  • Design of quantum co-processors (partnering with classical computers, quantum chemistry)
  • Use of special purpose “quantum simulators” & development of algorithms to calculate key aspects of quantum systems
  • Efficient coding of quantum information to enable detection and correction of errors
  • Quantum information sharing (viz., quantum internet, quantum cloud)

The second workshop (13th - 15th of June) is devoted to complex dynamical systems and networks (CDN). Major topics that will be covered include: 

  • High dimensional chaotic dynamical systems on networks & topology
  • Mathematical scaffolding of deep networks & influence on predictions
  • Fundamental understanding of spatiotemporal multiscale systems
  • Analysis of multiplex—multilayer networks as a sequence of graphs
  • Messy multivariate data
  • Networks as experiments (machine learning)
