KARACHI-Habib University hosted a four-day long Quantum Information Summer School

(QISS), where a public talk by Dr. Barry Sanders was held who stressed for developing a

national strategic research collaboration in Pakistan, at HU campus in Pakistans largest city


Dr. Barry sanders discussed Dr. Abdus Salams contributions to Physics as well as to science in

developing countries. He also talked about his interaction with Abdus Salam and his influence on

his work in quantum information science, especially Symmetries and conservation in the nature.

The public talk was part of larger four day QISS initiative aimed at providing an intensive

introduction to the field of Quantum Information.

Quantum technology is now on the verge of creating and exploiting the symmetries that not long

ago were only found in atoms and nuclei, and this technological prowess will present

applications to paradigm-shifting quantum computing. The field integrates ideas from physics,

computer science, engineering and philosophy with applications ranging from algorithms that

break secure communication protocols we use online every day to resolving paradoxes at the

cosmological scale related to black holes.

Speaker presented lectures on different quantum information topics in the HUs Soorty Hall.

Habib University received many applications for the program from all major universities

Pakistan. The participants appreciated the opportunity to learn about quantum information from

leading experts in the field.
