Tsirelson Memorial Workshop

To honor Tsirelson's legacy, the Institute for Quantum Optics and Quantum Information (IQOQI) Vienna is organizing the one-week workshop on quantum nonlocality Tsirelson 2SQRT2.

Boris Tsirelson, the Russian-Israeli mathematician who pioneered research in quantum nonlocality, passed away in January 2020. Among his contributions to quantum information theory, the characterization of quantum XOR games, the discovery of self-testing and, of course, the famous Tsirelson bound stand out.

The workshop will take place in Vienna, in person, on April 4th-8th, 2022. Confirmed invited speakers are:

    Antonio Acín (ICFO Barcelona, Spain)

    Lluís Masanes (University College London, UK)

    Stefano Pironio (Université libre de Bruxelles, Belgium)

    Sandu Popescu (University of Bristol, UK)

    Valerio Scarani (National University of Singapore)

    William Slofstra (University of Waterloo, Canada)

    Nacho Villanueva (Universidad Complutense de Madrid, Spain)

    Tamás Vértesi (Institute for Nuclear Research, Hungary)

    Henry Yuen (Columbia University, US)

We are now accepting submissions for contributed talks. If you are interested, please submit your abstract and paper via EasyChair. The submission deadline is January 7th. Decisions will be sent out by February 4th.

There is no conference fee, except for 50 euros if you want to attend the conference dinner. We can offer travel support to a limited number of students.
