Organiser: R Gill (Utrecht), VP Belavkin (Nottingham) and A Winter (Bristol)

This focus week is run in association with the Newton Institute programme entitled Quantum Information Science


Theme of Conference:

This week will focus on quantum mathematical statistics as interplay between quantum information and classical statistics. Topics include quantum state and channel estimation, quantum hypothesis testing, nonclassical measurement statsistics, statistical signatures of nonlocality. The detailed programme will appear in this space as soon as it emerges.

Location and Registration

These lectures are linked to the Isaac Newton Institute programme on Quantum Information Science (16 August to 17 December 2004).

Closing Date

The closing date for the receipt of applications has now passed.


Unfortunately, on this occasion, the Institute does not have any funding to assist applicants with attending this meeting.


The Institute has limited accommodation available.
