Frontiers of Quantum Decoherence
  An International Workshop

Centre for Quantum Information and Quantum Control (CQIQC)

August 12-14, 2006

Fields Institute & Bahen Center, University of Toronto, Canada

Decoherence is a fundamental physical phenomenon which occurs in a variety of quantum systems.  It has recently emerged as a priority research topic in many fields of science and technology.  This Workshop is intended to bring together international experts from various disciplines, to discuss foundational issues and to explore new research horizons.  Our focus will be on decoherence mechanisms in solid-state, atom/molecular and photonic systems, and on quantum algorithms for mitigating decoherence effects in quantum information processing.
