Summer School on Quantum Information and Quantum Technology -2021

14 June - 18 July 2021, IISER Kolkata

Aims & Objectives


The leisurely workshop is from 14th June 2021 to 18th July 2021 on an online platform. This will be followed by two special sessions:

PT Symmetry, Supersymmetry and their Applications to Quantum Science and Technology (10th and 11th July 2021)


Entanglement in Many Body Physics: A Random Matrix Perspective

(16th July 2021)

The morning session starts with talks from eminent scientists, with both pedagogical and technical aspects from their domain, connecting with experimental results. Each talk will be of one-hour duration followed by additional 30 minutes for the Q/A session.

There will be talks of similar nature in the afternoon. The timing may be slightly modified, depending on the convenience of the speakers.

The tutorials will follow in the evening by the tutors, having expertise in IBM or similar quantum computation platforms. The goal is to provide hands-on experience to the students and lead them towards research problems of their interest, for which there will be an Academic/ Research Bank. All of us will participate in designing relevant problems that may lead to publishable research works.

Special Colloquium: Prof. Sir Michael Victor Berry, FRS

"Quantum information processing and its use in technological applications is the most significant development of the 21st century. In this context, the month-long summer school ''QIQT-2021" is well-timed to bring together world-renowned experts in this area and the interested young students and researchers of India and abroad under one online platform . The Government of India, in general and the Department of Science and Technology, in particular, have earmarked quantum computing as a thrust area. I am very happy to see this timely endeavor of IISER-Kolkata has generated tremendous interest with close to 15000 participants. I wish the school great success in igniting the minds of young India. JAI HIND.
