Since our last symposium, quantum entanglement has become even more important in areas of theoretical physics ranging from condensed matter physics and quantum information to quantum gravity. In quantum gravity, it is playing a key role in elucidating the mechanism of the holographic duality between field theories and gravity theories. In condensed matter physics, entanglement has become a key organizing principle in new approaches to performing lattice simulations of quantum systems (like DMRG and MERA). It also acts as one of the few `tags’ for topologically ordered states – novel phases of matter not characterized by conventional order parameters. These developments make it an excellent time to bring together theorists in these areas to share their insights and tools.

Reimbursement and Travel Policy
Any expenses not directly paid for by the Simons Foundation are subject to reimbursement based on the travel policy. Please review the policy and complete the provided reimbursement form when submitting your expenses. All expenses with original receipts and completed expense reimbursement form are due within SIXTY DAYS (60) after the conclusion of the symposium. Should you have any questions, please contact Meghan Fazzi.
It is the foundation’s policy to discourage spouses, families or others from joining participants during the meeting. Participants who choose to invite guests to come before or stay on after the meeting do so at their own expense. The Simons Foundation will not cover expenses associated with such extensions.
Should you decide to extend your stay, the resort will honor the Simons Foundation group rate of $689/night for up to three additional nights. If you choose to bring a guest, your guest must depart by Sunday if coming before the symposium or arrive on Saturday if you are extending your stay at the end of the symposium.
