The purpose of this informal workshop was to discuss and exchange ideas on recent developments at the interface of modern cosmology and fundamental physics.
This conference, which was part of the series of Loops conferences, presented and review recent progress and highlights in loop quantum gravity and other quantum gravity approaches. There was a focus mainly on background independent approaches which are approaches that do not depend on perturbation theory formulated in a classical background.
This workshop, for the first time, brought together researchers working on different models of quantum gravity, who use the Renormalization Group in different forms. Conceptual as well as more technical questions were discussed, and a new dialogue between different quantum gravity approaches was established.
The subject of this workshop centered around the leading edge of current research in Quantum Information, specifically in the field of quantum error correction. Quantum LDPC codes is the only class of codes where a finite rate and a finite fault-tolerant error correction threshold are known to coexist.
