General

The workshop highlights the state-of-the-art of quantum information theory in a two-day meeting organized by the COE project, and features invited talks from the viewpoint of the Superrobust computation subproject, such as quantum error-correcting codes and quantum-information-theoretic treatment of decoherence and noises in quantum information processing. The workshop also focuses on quantum statistical inference, the theory of quantum communication, distinguishability and entanglement, including topics such as channel capacities and resource tradeoffs, quantum source coding and data compression, quantum channel coding and error-correcting codes, state and channel distinguishability and tomography, entanglement and entanglement measures, additivity/nonadditivity results, quantum cryptographic theory, teleportation and entanglement-assisted communication, and interaction as a communication primitive.
