Quantum Information in Quantum Gravity V

The workshop is aimed at facilitating discussion on applying information theoretic concepts to tackle quantum gravity conundrums. In recent years we have seen an increasing interplay between the quantum information and the string/quantum gravity communities and we aim to facilitate further interaction in this front. We plan to have a a few talks per day with lots of time for discussions. This is the 5th conference in the series, the first of which was organized in 2014 in UBC, Vancouver.
