9 days workshop (invitation only) at McMaster University followed by
a one day Open Symposium at the Fields Institute (Symposium
Information Geometry consists of the application of differential geometrical
methods to the study of families of probabilities, both classical and
quantum, either parametric or nonparametric. Much of the work in its
quantum version has been concentrated on manifolds of density operators
for both finite and infinite dimensional quantum systems and their associated
monotone metrics, alpha connections, quantum entropies and projection
While quantum information has always been a motivation for the geometric
study of quantum state spaces, this activity will bring together leading
experts in quantum information geometry with a common interest in the
application of geometric techniques to specific problems of quantum
computing, such as quantum estimation, quantum channel entropy,quantum
noise and entanglement and quantum algorithms. At the same time, it
aims to review the existing different trends in order to establish a
unified framework for further research into the differential geometric
properties of quantum state spaces in general.

McMaster University and the recently renovated James Stewart
Centre for Mathematics is located in Hamilton Hall and home of the Department of Mathematics & Statistics.
The McMaster campus is a 45-minute drive from Toronto's Pearson International Airport.
Hamilton also has a small airport of its own with regular
service to Montreal, Calgary, Ottawa and other cities in Canada on Westjet
For Participant flying into Toronto's Pearson Airport, and there is
a convenient shuttle service that will bring you directly to Hamilton
offered through Airways Transit. The one-way fare is
approx. $40 per person. Reservations can be made online at the Airways
Transit Website, or by calling (905) 689-4460.
