From 26th to 29th November, 2018, the Second Hong Kong-Shenzhen Workshop on Quantum Information Science was held in Southern University of Science and Technology (SUSTech). The workshop was jointly organized by the department of physics, SUSTech and Shenzhen Institute for Quantum Science and Engineering (SIQSE). The workshop invited more than 30 experts in the in the field of quantum information from famous universities in China and abroad, including Oxford University, The University of Queensland, University of Technology Sydney, National University of Singapore，Nanyang Technological University, Hong Kong University and so on. This workshop aims to discuss the frontier issues of quantum information and promote cooperation and exchanges in related fields in Guangdong, Hong Kong and Macao.
Academician Dapeng Yu made a speech on behalf of SIQSE at the beginning of the workshop. He briefly introduced the history and the development of SUSTech and SIQSE he also welcomed the experts and wished the workshop a success.
The conference invited 24 speakers, such as Hoi-Fung Chau 、Zidan Wang (The University of Hong Kong), Masahito Hayashi (the University of Tokyo, SIQSE, Singapore Quantum Technology Center) Yuan Feng (Sydney University of Technology) and Caslav Brukner (University of Vienna),to make academic presentations. These talks covered a broad set of topics, ranging from quantum information and quantum computation, to quantum statistics, quantum networks, and quantum foundations.
In the future, the Committee intends to organize the workshop into an annual high-quality academic workshop, providing an advanced communication platform for experts, scholars and students in the field of quantum information and related fields.
Joint professors of the department of physics and SIQSE, Man-Hong Yung, Oscar Dahlsten are the main organizers of this workshop.
