The Workshop on Quantum Algorithms, Computational Models, and Foundations of Quantum Mechanics, will be held from July 23 to July 25, 2010 at the University of British Columbia, Vancouver, Canada. This three-day workshop will focus on the mathematical aspects of quantum information: algorithms, computational models and foundations of quantum mechanics. It will serve as a focal point for experts in quantum information science to present their cutting edge research. The interdisciplinary nature and the industrial relevance of the topic will provide novel opportunities for researchers from different disciplines to exchange ideas and develop collaborations with a lasting impact, which may result in industrial applications.

Recently, surprising connections between quantum information and graph theory, and between quantum information and foundations of quantum mechanics have been established. A major purpose of this workshop is to discuss these connections from various points of view, and to coordinate the efforts of future research.

A further objective of the workshop is to facilitate industry-academics partnership. We wish to note that this workshop is partially sponsored by D-Wave Systems Inc., a Burnaby-based company dedicated to building large-scale adiabatic quantum computers.

This workshop is a satellite event to the 10th Canadian Summer School on Quantum Information, giving students a rare learning opportunity to see real-world applications of quantum information science research. Summer school students (post-docs and graduate students) are invited to attend the workshop free of charge.

This research workshop is an informal successor to two previous workshops, namely (1) Workshop “Graph Theory and Quantum Information: Emerging Connections” held at Perimeter Institute Waterloo, April 28 - May 2, 2008, and (2) QICS Workshop on “Foundational Structures for Quantum Information and Computation” September 14-20,2008, Obergurgl, Tyrol, Austria.
