The workshop aimed at developing interactions between researchers from quantum information theory and from asymptotic geometric analysis. A central notion discussed was the phenomenon of quantum entanglement, which naturally leads to geometric considerations in high-dimensional vector spaces. In these spaces, phenomena such as concentration of measure become prominent and may invalidate our low-dimensional intuition.
