All sessions are available ONLINE except for those sessions in YELLOW blocks in the timeteable.
Research at the intersection of quantum physics and artificial intelligence is rapidly growing in academia and industry. This oneweek minicourse will introduce a selection of computational methods currently being applied in quantum industry settings and will highlight career opportunities outside of academia for students and researchers with a background in quantum theory and computational physics. The course will consist of two lecture series: one on generative modeling (including restricted Boltzmann machines, neural autoregressive distribution estimators, and recurrent neural networks) by Perimeter researchers Roger Melko and Mohamed Hibat Allah, and another lecture series on tensor networks and quantum algorithms by Martin Ganahl of SandboxAQ. Afternoons will include coding tutorials, workshops, talks from speakers who have transitioned from academia to quantum industry, and career networking opportunities.
Confirmed guests for the Industry networking session are:
 1QBit
 Agnostiq
 Amazon Web Services
 IBM Quantum
 Nord Quantique
 Quantum Valley Ideas Laboratories
 SandboxAQ
 Xanadu
 YiyaniQ
 ZebraKet
This minicourse will assume that participants have the following prerequisites:

Graduatelevel knowledge of quantum mechanics (including wavefunctions, singlebody quantum mechanics, Hamiltonians, density matrices, time evolution, and angular momentum) and statistical mechanics (including partition functions, the Ising model, and phase transitions),

Knowledge of introductory machine learning methods (see, for instance, Lectures 16 of Perimeter’s course on Machine Learning for ManyBody Physics), and

Basic programming skills in Python.

Quantum Spacetime in the Cosmos: From Conception to Reality
32 talksCollection Number C23035On Demand Recording: https://pirsa.org/C23035
The nature of space and time is one of the most foundational mysteries in both Physics and Philosophy. At the heart of this mystery are the two most successful theories of nature: Einstein's theory of relativity, an elegant and precise description of the geometry of our universe on large scales, and Quantum Mechanics, outlining accurate laws of interaction in the subatomic world. But these two great triumphs of 20th century physics remain inherently inconsistent, contradictory in their most basic principles, such as locality and causality. Nonetheless, the experimental domains or natural phenomena where these contradictions become manifest have remained elusive, and it is not clear that a century of theoretical investigation into quantum gravity is anywhere close to being verified in nature.
Arguably, this disconnect is our greatest and most foundational challenge in the history of Physics; despite groundbreaking progress in both theory and observations of quantum spacetimes, these two endeavours are moving farther apart. Successfully responding to this centuryold challenge could require rethinking the epistemology of fundamental physics. While physicists are trained to push the frontiers of knowledge, developing a grand vision of the arch of history, and where we are (or should be) heading is a more interdisciplinary endeavor, requiring insights from theory and observations, but also philosophy and history.
We plan a focused, interactive, and highly interdisciplinary workshop, involving the world’s best theorists, observers, experimentalists, and philosophers, within a supportive, inclusive, and diverse environment, in order to kick start a long term initiative that might be our best bet to make significant progress towards uncovering the quantum nature of spacetime.Sponsorship provided by:

Quantum Gravity (2022/2023)
13 talksCollection Number C23025The main focus of this course is the exploration of the symmetry structure of General Relativity which is an essential step before any attempt at a (direct) quantization of GR. We will start by developing powerful tools for the analysis of local symmetries in physical theories (the covariant phase space method) and then apply it to increasingly complex theories: the parametrized particle, YangMills theory, and finally General Relativity. We will discover in which ways these theories have similar symmetry structures and in which ways GR is special. We will conclude by reviewing classical results on the uniqueness of GR given its symmetry structure and discuss why it is so hard to quantize it. In tutorials and homeworks, through the reading of articles and collegial discussions in the classroomas well as good old exercisesyou will explore questions such as "Should general relativity be quantized at all? Is a single graviton detactable (even in principle)?", "What is the meaning of the wave functions of the universe?", "Can we do physics without time?". 
Cosmology (2022/2023)
13 talksCollection Number C23028This class is an introduction to cosmology. We'll cover expansion history of the universe, thermal history, dark matter models, and as much cosmological perturbation theory as time permits. 
AdS/CFT (2022/2023)
13 talksCollection Number C23026We will cover the basics of the gauge/gravity duality, including some of the following aspects: holographic fluids, applications to condensed matter systems, entanglement entropy, and recent advances in understanding the black hole information paradox. 
Quantum Matter (2022/2023)
13 talksCollection Number C23024Matter is quantum. Growing experimental results on materials, natural and synthetic (ion traps, cold atoms etc.,) and concomitant theoretical developments make `quantum matter' an exciting field. There is also a growing interplay of quantum matter physics and quantum information/computation. With a focus on concepts I plan to discuss key phenomenology, quantum models and theory. 
Mathematical Physics  Elective (2022/2023)
13 talksCollection Number C23027Title: An introduction to twistors Course Description: Twistor theory, introduced by Penrose many years ago, is a way to reformulate massless fields on fourdimensional spacetime in terms of an auxiliary 6dimensional complex manifold, called twistor space. This course will introduce twistor space and the Penrose correspondence (relating fields on twistor space and spacetime), at both classical and quantum levels. We will discuss the twistor realization of selfdual YangMills theory and of selfdual gravity. If time permits we will discuss the connection between twistors and celestial holography.

MiniCourse of Numerical Conformal Bootstrap
15 talksCollection Number C23030This school will be an advanced course on the numerical bootstrap. In the lectures, we will discuss advanced theoretical aspects of numerical bootstrap and algorithms. In the tutorials, we will demonstrate how to use simpleboot/hyperion and help the participants to run bootstrap computation on their own clusters. Main examples are 3D Ising, O(2), O(3), GrossNeveuYukawa CFTs.
The school will consist of one lecture in the morning and two tutorials in the afternoon (one tutorial for simpleboot (by Ning Su) and another one for hyperion (by Aike Liu).
This event is supported by the Simons Collaboration on The Nonperturbative Bootstrap (https://bootstrapcollaboration.com/).

Causal Inference & Quantum Foundations Workshop
26 talksCollection Number C23017Recently we have seen exciting results at the intersection of quantum foundations and the statistical analysis of causal hypotheses by virtue of the centrality of latent variable models to both fields.
In this workshop we will explore how academics from both sides can move the shared frontiers forward. Towards that end, we are including extensive breakout collaboration opportunities in addition to formal presentations. In order to make concrete progress on problems pertinent to both communities, we have selected the topic of causal models with restricted cardinality of the latent variables as a special focus for this workshop.

Foundations of quantum mechanics and general relativity 
Causal Inference: Classical and Quantum
10 talksCollection Number C23016Can the effectiveness of a medical treatment be determined without the expense of a randomized controlled trial? Can the impact of a new policy be disentangled from other factors that happen to vary at the same time? Questions such as these are the purview of the field of causal inference, a generalpurpose science of cause and effect, applicable in domains ranging from epidemiology to economics. Researchers in this field seek in particular to find techniques for extracting causal conclusions from statistical data. Meanwhile, one of the most significant results in the foundations of quantum theory—Bell’s theorem—can also be understood as an attempt to disentangle correlation and causation. Recently, it has been recognized that Bell’s result is an early foray into the field of causal inference and that the insights derived from almost 60 years of research on his theorem can supplement and improve upon stateoftheart causal inference techniques. In the other direction, the conceptual framework developed by causal inference researchers provides a fruitful new perspective on what could possibly count as a satisfactory causal explanation of the quantum correlations observed in Bell experiments. Efforts to elaborate upon these connections have led to an exciting flow of techniques and insights across the disciplinary divide. This course will explore what is happening at the intersection of these two fields. zoom link: https://pitp.zoom.us/j/94143784665?pwd=VFJpajVIMEtvYmRabFYzYnNRSVAvZz09
