Dorit Aharonov (Hebrew University of Jerusalem), Thomas Vidick (Massachusetts Institute of Technology; Microsoft Research Fellow), John Watrous (University of Waterloo)

This workshop will focus on quantum interactive proofs and entangled quantum games. It will include recent advances in our understanding of the complexity class QMIP of multiple entangled provers, as well as QPIP, quantum polynomial time bounded provers. The workshop will also address quantum PCP from an interactive proof perspective.

Enquiries may be sent to the organizers workshop_qhc1 [at] (at this address.)

with the following information (inline, no attachments please):

  • name,
  • institution,
  • PhD advisor,
  • expected graduation date,
  • and a brief resume and statement of research interests.

The deadline for applications is Friday, December 6th, and successful applicants will be notified shortly thereafter.

Note: This application is only for students requesting financial support. Interested students will be able to apply for general registration about 10 weeks before the workshop.
