The first It From Qubit collaboration workshop and summer school was held at the Perimeter Institute in Waterloo, Canada in July, 2016.  The workshop and school was attended by 180 researchers from around the world, and was, by all measures, a great succes.  The sessions focused on a range of topics relating to the rapidly evolving intersection between fundamental quantum physics and quantum information theory.  Some of the questions addressed include:

  • Does spacetime emerge from entanglement?
  • How can quantum mechanics and gravity be unified?
  • Can the new applications for quantum information uncover something fundamental about information itself?
