OVERVIEW

 

During the last decades, the field known as Quantum Thermodynamics has attracted high interest from the scientific community, not only from physicists, but also from computer science and engineering. The recent litereature witnessed a significant increase in the volume of articles on the thermodynamics of small systems, where quantum mechanics become important, as well as on the dynamics of quantum systems out of thermodynamic equilibrium.

 

Another field of great interest is the so-called quantum information theory, that has been established as a new and influential field of research over the past two decades. Given its highly interdisciplinary nature, it is a clear consensus within and outside the quantum information community that the tools developed over the last years will have a long-term impact in many branches of science.

 

The present event lies in the interface of such fields. More specifically, the application of the tools derived from quantum information theory to the field of quantum thermodynamics, a line of research that has immensely helped in the understanding of the basic principles of physics and has led us to the development and extensions of the laws thermodynamics to the quantum domain. Therefore, the field of quantum thermodynamics, as seem from the lenses of quantum information, will be the main guideline for the present programme.

 

The purpose of this workshop is to bring together researchers who are considered exponents in the area for discussions on the subject, both from a theoretical and experimental point of view, and to contribute to the growth of this area of knowledge. Quantum thermodynamics has grown so diverse that it is now impossible to include all its strands in a single event. We focus here on the application of quantum information tools to the field of quantum thermodynamics. The main themes of the conference are: Quantum Information, Quantum Statistical Mechanics, Quantum many-body systems and Quantum Open Systems.

 

Differently from the first edition, the present event will consist of one general conference and one workshop. It will take place over two consecutive weeks: The first week will be devoted to the conference while the last one for the workshop.
