International YQIS Conference and CoQuS Summer School

Organised by and for early stage researchers, the joint International Conference for Young Quantum Information Scientists (YQIS) and Summer School of the Vienna Doctoral Program on Complex Quantum Systems (CoQuS) took place between 17 - 21 September 2018 at the Faculty of Physics, University of Vienna (Austria).The purpose this special combination of the 4th edition of the YQIS Conference and the 11th edition of the CoQuS Summer School was twofold. Firstly, we offered introductory lectures by leading researchers in theoretical and experimental quantum physics to an audience of local and international PhD students. Additionally, this gathering facilitated stimulating discussions between the students and visiting researchers based on scientific oral and poster presentations.

For this 2018 edition, we would like to address the following topics:

·             Quantum Foundations

·             Technologies for Quantum Information Processing

·             Quantum Simulation and Computation

·             Quantum Thermodynamics and Open Systems

·             Quantum Communication and Cryptography
