Understanding the nature of entanglement in quantum systems has been an important challenge in theoretical physics since the early days of quantum mechanics.  However, it is only during the last decade that entanglement became a powerful tool to characterize extended quantum systems. Various aspects of quantum entanglement have been studied by employing the most advanced methods available in Quantum Field Theory, Quantum Gravity, Condensed Matter and Quantum Information.  Despite the great achievements, many important theoretical questions are still unanswered and it is nowadays evident that an interdisciplinary effort is necessary to find satisfactory solutions.

The aim of this workshop is bringing together a broad spectrum of theorists who have a strong expertise in the areas of Quantum Field Theory, Quantum Gravity,  Condensed Matter Theory and Quantum Information, including also some experimentalists, in order to exchange knowledge and discuss open problems related to entanglement from different perspectives.

ACRI fellowships

Individual fellowships are available for young researchers funded by ACRI under the “Young Investigator Training Program 2017”. The fellowship supports a scientific visit of at least one month in Italy: it provides 3000 euro for researchers from Europe or 4000 euro for those from outside Europe. The visit must include the attendance of the program “Entanglement in Quantum Systems” at GGI for at least two weeks. The remaining time must be spent in another research institute in Italy among the ones selected for this program, which are listed here, together with the corresponding contact person, who must approve the visit. A CV and a research statement including the chosen research institute and the reasons for this choice must be sent by email to Erik Tonni. The deadline is February 15, 2018.
