Welcome to the 1st Workshop on Quantum Simulations with Trapped Ions (IQsim13)


16-19 December 2013, Old Ship Hotel, Brighton UK


Trapped ions are an extremely powerful system for the implementation of quantum simulations. In this workshop we will discuss the following key elements:
-              Experimental implementations of quantum simulations with trapped ions
-              Theoretical ideas for quantum simulations with trapped ions
-              Architectures for quantum simulations with trapped ions
-              Entanglement generation and coherent evolution in trapped ion quantum simulators.
