I am organizing a week-long workshop in Toulouse, on topics of optimization problems in quantum information theory. Besides the usual research talks, there will be lectures by Aram Harrow, Jean Bernard Lasserre and Mihai Putinar on the topics of the workshop: linear matrix inequalities, semidefinite programming, and quantum information theory. We have still some free slots for talks, so contact me if you're interested.

@seanmcarroll on @joerogan podcast: physicists understand quantum mechanics in the same way that someone who owns a smartphone understands smartphones: they know how to use the apps ... but they don't know what's going on inside
