ICMT Workshops

  • Quantum Entanglement and Quantum Information Workshop

    The Institute for Condensed Matter Theory will host a conference July 15-19, 2019 in 276 Loomis on applications and aspects of tensor networks and entanglement (broadly construed). The conference is supported by the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation.  The goal of the conference is to promote discussion and interaction from a diverse range of viewpoints on topics ranging from the use of tensor networks as a conceptual language for quantum information and computation to the nuts and bolts of implementing tensor network algorithms. The conference will consist of interactive chalkboard talks (i.e. no powerpoint) with significant audience participation (discussion and interruption from the audience.)

    There is no fee to attend, but we still ask you to register here for catering numbers:  https://my.physics.illinois.edu/eventreg/register.asp?id=1464

  • The 27th International Conference on Statistical Physics, Statphys27

    The 27th International Conference on Statistical Physics, Statphys27, organized by the International Union of Pure and Applied Physics (IUPAP) will be held in Buenos Aires (Argentina) on July 8-12, 2019. We have secured funding from the U.S. National Science Foundation for partial support for travel of up to $1,000 U.S. dollars per traveler of up to about 25 participants from U.S. institutions (graduate students, post docs and junior faculty will be given preference) who will be presenting a paper at the conference.

    Since the funds are limited they will be assigned by order of application date. To apply for funding please go to the website  https://icmt.illinois.edu/opps-travel-funds.asp
