Workshop in Quantum Information, Complexity & Cryptography

June 11-12, 2020
University of York, UK

We are organising a two-day event at the University of York in collaboration with York Interdisciplinary Centre for Cyber Security, which brings researchers in Quantum Information, Complexity and Cryptography together. The goal is to cover recent topics in these areas and facilitate interactions between them. The event is generously sponsored by the Heilbronn Institute for Mathematical Research and York CS department. We hope to have mathematicians, physicists and computer scientists alike at the event. We have about 20 travel bursaries to support the attendance of young and early-career researchers, and encourage under-represented groups to apply.
