Quantum walks, which are quantum-mechanical analogues of random walks, are promising models to understand quantum dynamics. These models have sparked various theoretical and experimental investigations covering areas in mathematics, physics, quantum information, and statistical mechanics. This workshop will aim to bring interdisciplinary researchers from all areas of quantum walks, both theoretical and experimental, together to discuss recent work and find future directions of research.

There will be a number of invited speakers and we will also accept a number of contributed talks.

We strongly encourage young researchers to join us at this workshop.

This is the 6th in series of workshops focussing on aspects of quantum walks, and will take place in Prague, Czech Republic.
