Quantum information theory seeks to understand the fundamental limits set by quantum mechanics for information processing tasks. The mathematical aspects of quantum information rely on tools from various fields including mathematical optimization, high-dimensional convex geometry, operator algebras and representation theory. The goal of this meeting is to focus on the mathematical aspects connecting geometry, optimization and quantum information theory and develop new tools to solve some of the open problems at the intersection of these fields.
