The field of quantum correlations has undergone rapid developments in the last few years. Several challenges have emerged in formalization of theoretical tools for such studies. New directions have arisen from experimental results using the state of the art technology. Notably, resource theories of quantum coherence are taking shape. Rapid progress in quantum thermodynamics has resulted in new paradigms in the study of many body systems. On the other hand, quantum nonlocality has continued to attract a number of researchers from diverse fields into this subject. Specially, its applications in device independent cryptography and randomness generation have given a further boost to this area of research. In order to take stock of the major advances in several theoretical and experimental aspects of quantum correlations, we will be organizing an International Symposium on New Frontiers in Quantum Correlations (ISNFQC18) during 29th January to 2nd Februray 2018 at S. N. Bose National Centre for Basic Sciences, Kolkata. The Symposium will involve presentations by experts on the above areas (including but not limited to following topical themes):
The year 2018 happens to be the 125th birth anniversary of Prof. S. N. Bose, the founder of quantum statistics. Bose's work formed a historical inspiration for the development of many attributes of quantum indistinguishability, and acted as a forerunner to the subsequent strides in quantum information science. This Symposium will be a keynote event in a year long sequence of seminars, conferences and public outreach programmes to be organized at S. N. Bose National Centre for Basic Sciences, Kolkata.
